|Political & economic prospect (2018)||The appointment of a new minister of planning and finance, Soe Win, in May 2018 could help to galvanise economic reform and changes to the tax system, which had lagged under the previous minister, Kyaw Win. Nonetheless, progress on financial reform will remain sluggish, and vested interests, notably in the military, will continue to impede policy change. Economic growth should remain rapid: we expect real GDP growth to average 7.2% a year in 2018-22.|
