Abstract

This SIA seeks to analyse the extent to which the EU-Myanmar IPA may affect the economy and sustainability issues, including social and labour standards,
environment, and human rights, in Myanmar. The SIA finds that the IPA may largely have positive economic impacts, however social and environmental impacts are more difficult to predict, as they will be dependent on how
increased EU investment is directed, and the practices of related EU firms. The project team have proposed policy recommendations to increase potential positive impacts of the agreement and address negative externalities that could arise from increased investment by European
investors as a result of the IPA.
