Hosted by

Energy Research Institute (ERI, Chulalongkorn University)

Policy Alternative Research Institute (PARI, the University of Tokyo)

Supported by

Economic Research Institute for ASEAN and East Asia (ERIA) & ASEAN Center for Energy (ACE))

1. Objective: This is the first event of a series of workshops where informal brainstorming discussions on energy and energy policy of Myanmar are to be organized. Regarding energy developments in Myanmar, this seminar aims: – to understand the current dialogue in Myanmar; – to realize the relevant opportunities and barriers; and – to draw implications for further energy developments.

2. Outline: 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 more promising with the energy development. For the development, ERI and PARI hold this seminar series 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 seminar tries to understand opportunities and barriers and realize expected roles for each stakeholder. What are the current dialogues regarding the power development in Myanmar? What are the relevant opportunities and barriers? What kind of roles is expected for each stakeholder to remove the barriers for further progress in Myanmar? By discussing those questions, we will draw implications for our further research
