Myanmar Agriculture in 2011: Old Problems and New Challenges

Conducted as a follow-up to a research paper released in 2010, this study assesses how contextual changes in Myanmar's government and the South-East Asian region have impacted the development of the nation's agriculture sector and household income. The paper focuses on agricultural loans, farmer insolvency, landlessness, and the impacts of international exchange rates on the prices of agricultural inputs and outputs. The authors also explore steps towards a set of export-oriented policies for the Myanmar agriculture sector, and other methods to improve both yield and efficiency of agriculture in the country.
