Whose Crops, At What Price? Agricultural investment in Myanmar

After years of international isolation, Myanmar is liberalising its economy and seeking to attract foreign investment. By looking at the level and types of agribusiness investment in Myanmar, this paper outlines potential risks to communities posed by these investments, and explores state regulation of outbound investments as a way to promote responsible business practices in the sector. The paper makes recommendations to the Government of Myanmar and to investors on improving the scrutiny and monitoring of investments, tackling land rights abuses and ensuring that companies honour their responsibilities to respect human rights.
