Effective Bureaucracy can Facilitate Economic Reforms in Myanmar


  • Anita Prakash

    (Economic Research Institute for ASEAN and East Asia)


Myanmar has opened up to democratic and economic reforms. Bureaucracy is one of the chosen agents of reforms, both political and economic. Bureaucracy faces the difficult task to reform itself for optimum delivery of reforms. Structural changes are required in transforming the bureaucracy into a development agent. Capacity building of the bureaucracy, without compromising its independence, is required for the effective implementation of reforms. A restructured and informed bureaucracy should be Myanmar’s preferred agent of change.
