MandateThe EuroCham Myanmar Legal and Tax Advocacy Group is a platform for information sharing and discussion and concerns itself with legal and tax matters in Myanmar relating to all commercial sectors and legal and tax issues ancillary thereto.
In 2019 the Group went through some changes and acquired a dual focus, dealing with both legal and tax matters. The Group is a joint advocacy initiative in Myanmar for higher standard in trade and investment. The goal is to help the Myanmar government develop policies and laws that would be beneficial for European businesses which are planning to enter Myanmar, or, are already present on the ground. Such an initiative would promote overall foreign direct investment in the country and would improve the quality of lives by generating more employment opportunities and fostering a better financial environment.
