Peter Day hears personal stories from people who have been reacting to the particular difficulties of doing business in Myanmar. From the 1990s until the present, we hear insights into doing business under a repressive regime through to an economy which is opening up.
Moe Kyaw, also known as Peter Thein, describes how he returned to Myanmar after growing up in London, trying his hand at different businesses including Myanmar Marketing Research Development (MMRD). When sanctions hit, he was forced to adapt.
