“The working conditions of Myanmar, forced labour and managing human resources”, Myanmar Private Equity and Venture Capital Association (MPE&VCA)

Further Information

Investors' positioning and the guidance provided by their respective moral values could become even more crucial going forward for conducting responsible investments focused on Myanmar.

One of the significant consequences of COVID and its political and economic impacts on Myanmar was the 1.2 million job losses in the country, based on data from ILO. The Livelihoods and Food Security Fund (LIFT)'s recently released report, a result of more than 2,400 workers surveyed last year, reflected working conditions in Myanmar and how effective it can be to implement an improved labour governance framework. With an increased rate of poverty, the country is poised to see a further worsening of existing poor labour governance standards unless the state and responsible investors take serious consideration of the situation.

Join our session to hear the key findings of the report, "From the Rice Paddy to The Industrial Park" and engage in a discussion to explore more.

Also, participate in the "Question the HR professionals" session to get tips and thoughts on managing human resources and policy setups for your organisation.

We are also bringing in leading HR professionals to answer queries members might have about managing human resources including with respect to HR policy. We welcome any questions - either a general one about HR or specific ones around people management with integration of business strategies or compensation issues, among others.
