Taiwan-Myanmar Overseas Economic Surveys Research Center
I. Introduction
Purpose of this project is based on the experience of Directorate-General of Budget, Accounting and Statistics in conducting surveys to assist Myanmar in facilitating research and data analysis on economic related issues. According to the current New Southbound Policy, international trade cooperation, talents exchange, information sharing and regional economic linkage are the four main goals. This project is regarded as a comprehensive cooperative framework project between Taiwan and Myanmar to promote the four goals in one. National Chi Nan University and the main Chamber of Commerce in Myanmar, the Union of Myanmar Federation of Chambers of Commerce and Industry (UMFCCI) will work closely to set up a research center in Yangon, Myanmar based on the concept of information sharing to introduce the international standard survey system of Directorate-General of Budget, Accounting and Statistics in Taiwan to carry out data collection and analysis on economic related issues. Consequently this joint project will involve professional and technical personnel exchange and exchange of visits on both sides. The collected results from surveys not only will serve as the fundamentals for Myanmar public and private sectors for policies design and decisions making, but also allow us to have better understandings on business development process in Myanmar and therefore help us to expand business in, and trade with, Myanmar. Our assistance in collecting data and analyzing results in Myanmar will in turn enhance our economic relationship with neighboring countries in the regions. Eventually, this project will strengthen our relationship with Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) member countries and South Asian countries over economic affair, international trade, education, regulation, technology, culture and talents exchange at all aspects.
