Myanmar, formerly known as Burma, holds an array of as yet untapped opportunities for many Irish professionals.

Among the early movers recognising this is IPAV, the Institute of Professional Auctioneers and Valuers.

It has just signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the EU Myanmar Centre (EUMC), a not-for-profit non-governmental organisation tasked with facilitating trade, commerce and investment between Myanmar and the 28 EU Member States.

The agreement, signed by IPAV’s Senior Vice President, Eamon O’Flaherty, and a Director of the EUMC, opens up a plethora of possibilities, among them the sharing of professional education expertise and new accreditation programmes.

Eamon O’Flaherty said Myanmar is very progressively embracing a wide range of social and economic reforms.
