Twenty years ago, Sudhir Shetty was the World Bank’s Senior Country Economist for the nation formerly known as Burma. This week, Sudhir Shetty is back in Yangon as the World Bank’s Chief Economist for the East Asia and Pacific region, and is seeing a very different country with cranes dotting the commercial capital’s skyline, imported cars filling the city’s streets, and growing tourism.

During this event, Sudhir will give a presentation on recent economic developments in East Asia and Myanmar, followed by a panel discussion featuring business leaders in Myanmar to discuss their perspectives on Myanmar’s economic policy priorities.
