Myanmar Economic Monitor October 2017 (World Bank)

Myanmar's macroeconomic environment remains stable, though economic growth is estimated to have slowed to 5.9 percent in 2016/17 compared to 7 percent in 2015/16, weighed down by slower investment demand. Growth is projected to recover to 6.4 percent in 2017/18, though risks are tilted to the downside due to the recent escalation of tensions in Rakhine State and the potential stalling of the overall reform agenda.
