ADB started reengagement in Myanmar in early 2012 and formally established its Myanmar Resident Mission (MYRM) in April 2014, with offices in Nay Pyi Taw and Yangon. MYRM provides the primary interface for ADB operations between ADB and government, the private sector, civil society stakeholders, and other development partners. MYRM engages in policy dialogue, country strategy development and programming, portfolio management, and knowledge management.
ADB in Myanmar aims to promote inclusive and sustainable economic growth with focus on infrastructure (transport, energy, and urban development); education and training; and agriculture and rural development. ADB also focuses on capacity development and governance, private sector development, environment, climate change and disaster risk management, and regional integration, gender equity, context sensitivity, and knowledge solutions.
