Abstract Myanmar boasts numerous assets including fertile land that is rich in minerals and hydrocarbons, forests and hydro-resources, and a relatively young population. By coupling these assets with its favourable geo-strategic location in a dynamic region, Myanmar can establish a multi-pronged strategy for sustained, rapid growth and development based on agriculture, resource extraction, manufacturing and services. Yet time is of the essence: Myanmar’s now comparatively young population will start ageing in the next two decades. If the momentum for development created by the country’s opening and internal peace process is not seized, Myanmar could get old before it gets rich.
