On September 23, AMCHAM Myanmar members gathered at the U. S. Embassy in Yangon to hear U. S. Ambassador to Myanmar Scot Marciel’s briefing on the visit of Daw Aung San Suu Kyi to Washington, DC. The meeting was attended by over sixty AMCHAM Myanmar members, representatives of the Asian Development Bank, as well as several Embassy employees. Ambassador Marciel described the various meetings Daw Suu had in DC, and provided an update on current political and economic issues between the U. S. and Myanmar, including the status of the U. S. sanctions. Before and after the briefing, participants had an opportunity to network and exchange views on current issues of interest.
Thank you to the SMART Group for providing refreshments.
