How many bilateral investment agreements have Myanmar made with other countries? 

 

For starter, you can visit at this link https://investmentpolicyhub.unctad.org/IIA/CountryBits/144… for more info and see the contracts. 

 

Based on the page, Myanmar has signed 9 bilateral investment treaties and out of them, 7 are in force. With China, Myanmar has already signed bilateral agreement since 2001 and entered into force in 2002. 

 

As Myanmar is a member of ASEAN, it is also part of the treaties ASEAN made with other countries which contain investment provisions. So far, 11 multilateral agreements have been signed. With China, ASEAN signed “ASEAN-China Investment Agreement” in 2009 and entered into force in 2010. 

 

These kind of treaties last from 10 to 20 years. And on top of that, they are also survived after the termination date for 10-15 more years as sunset period. 

 

Why do countries make such agreements? What kind of provisions are included?
