A virtual launch of the Myanmar Micro, Small and Medium Enterprise Survey (2019) report will take place on the 1st of September 2020. The online launch event will bring together policy-makers, representatives from international organizations and researchers to discuss the findings of the report.
The report is the second quantitative report of the Myanmar Enterprises Monitoring System (MEMS) project. The first report, released in 2018, was the first of its kind in Myanmar’s history. The new report covers 2,268 enterprises, which participated in both phases of the study.
The Myanmar Enterprises Monitoring System (MEMS) survey is part of the project ‘Towards Inclusive Development in Myanmar’, initiated by the Central Statistical Organisation (CSO) of the Ministry of Planning and Finance and Industry of Myanmar.
The project is supported financially by the Government of Denmark, with technical cooperation provided by the United Nations University World Institute for Development Economics Research (UNU-WIDER) and the Development Economics Research Group (DERG) of the University of Copenhagen. The project aims to strengthen evidence-based policy-making and analysis and help underpin Myanmar’s move through a challenging structural transformation and development process.
