To encourage Japanese companies to increase investment and expand their presence in Myanmar, it will be necessary for the country to improve such infrastructure as power supply and transportation systems, Mimura said during the meeting in Nay Pyi Taw, Myanmar’s capital, Japan’s Jiji Press reported.
He also sought the establishment of legal systems on investment and customs clearance and their transparent operations.
Mimura became the first leader of a Japanese business organization to meet with State Counsellor Daw Aung San Suu Kyi, since her administration was launched in spring last year. Many Japanese companies are highly interested in doing business in Myanmar with high growth potential and the Japanese business circle will continue making contributions to the country’s economic development through direct investment and technical assistance, Mimura told Daw Aung San Suu Kyi.
He also stressed that it will be important for her country to foster small businesses and develop human resources to build the foundation for growth.
