Myanmar, being a developing country in transition, is still faced with obstacles in many areas like many other countries in the region. The main obstacles to investors include, but not limited to, lack of adequate hard and soft infrastructures. The hard infrastructures can be built up in a short time if adequate level of funding is available; however, development of soft infrastructures in a short time is not easy as it requires the process of mindset change. The process of mindset change requires the process of evolution that takes time in many countries.
