Regarding electric power developments in Myanmar, this workshop aimes:
- to understand current barriers and its removal regarding the on-going power investment projects in Myanmar;
- to introduce the relevant research achievement conducted by ERI/PARI joint research project; and
- to kick-off the new ERI/PARI joint research project focusing on the Salween River Development
After the opening of the country, Myanmar economy has remarkably progressed. Its energy development, however, has been lag behind the economic boom. The country’s further progress is promising with the energy development. For the development, PARI has held stakeholder’s meetings in collaboration with ERIA.
As a matter of fact, the country cannot achieve energy development without sound global/regional linkages. Focusing on the energy relationship with neighboring richer countries, this workshop tries to address the barrier and its removal regarding the power integration with Myanmar.
What are barriers for the power integration with Myanmar? What kind of win-win relationship could be imagined through power integrations? What kind of energy policies / regulations is needed to craft win-win situation? By discussing those questions, we will draw implications for our further research.
