To increase the number of individual investors including shareholders of listed companies in Myanmar and to support the growth of Myanmar enterprises, Yangon Stock Exchange organized “YSX Expo 2018” in Yangon on Sunday.
Managing Director, Yangon Stock Exchange, Yin Zaw Myo said “This expo is our 2nd edition with the aim of promoting and developing not only Yangon Stock Exchange but also Stock market in Myanmar. I hope the visitors will get a lot of financial literacy knowledge as well as opportunities and ways to investment in Yangon Stock Exchange. We have plans to organize this expo every year.”
This YSX Expo 2018 also featured seminars and panel discussions by business experts including executives of 5 listed companies.
Director General of Directorate of Investment and Company Administration stressed the importance of laws and investment process in Myanmar.
Director General, Directorate of Investment and Company Administration, Aung Naing Oo said “Laws play a main role to develop investment sector in the country. So the Government also made amendments to “Investment Law” and “Companies Law” and other related laws. The new Companies Law can bring more foreign investments to Myanmar. Both Investment Law and Companies Law have now come into effect so I think the investment rate will increase and reach our expectation in 2019.”
