Inflation in Myanmar

Myanmar Inflation | Economic News & Forecasts

Myanmar - Inflation

Despite accelerating through April–June according to recent data, economic growth is expected to have moderated last year with changes to the fiscal year likely complicating matters such as tax collection and potentially weighing on government spending. Looking to 2019, the economy should have performed robustly in January–March, as operating conditions in the manufacturing sector continued to improve in February on stronger output and new domestic order growth. This also led to an increase in staff numbers and, coupled with muted inflationary pressures, likely buttressed economic activity in the quarter. Less positively, the junta is set to implement constitutional changes to safeguard the military’s power while armed conflict in the Rakhine state carried into mid-March, likely dampening investor sentiment.
