Thai investors will face more difficulty when investing in Myanmar after the implementation of the Asean Economic Community (AEC) due to a significant rise in wage and land costs and increased competition with international investors, according to a study by the University of the Thai Chamber of Commerce’s Centre for International Trade Studies (CITS). According to the study, the value of FDI to Myanmar will skyrocket by 200-400% in 2015 after the AEC kicks off and the cost of land in Myanmar is projected to rise by 200-300% during the period.
