Myanmar Electric Power Convention 2013 (MEPC 2013)

16-18 October 2013
Traders Hotel, Yangon, Myanmar

Changes of Myanmar’s political situation in last two years are bringing a breath of fresh air to its long-term closed economy. The ease of Western countries’ sanction, along with Myanmar’s New Foreign Investment Law, makes this country a new investment hot spot over Southeast Asia.

Among all the industries, power is one of the most important sectors with huge growth potential. In the meantime, Myanmar is still lagged behind in terms of supply, transmission and distribution infrastructure. National electric connection rate is only around 25% and it’s even lower in most rural areas. And the poor efficiency of country’s power generation and T&D system makes the situation worse. Over the past few years, the per capita electricity consumption of Myanmar kept among the lowest in Southeast Asia. Lack of technology and investment is the main cause of Myanmar’s power poverty, but it has rich resources in hydro and fossil – natural gas, oil and coal, which makes Myanmar’s power sector one of best investment destination for international investors.

Under such background, Myanmar Electric Power Convention 2013 is to convene from 16 to 18 October 2013 in Yangon to discuss hottest issues facing the country’s electric power sector. Main sessions of the conference will include investment environment, power generation and T&D master planning, legal and regulatory framework, advanced technologies, financing issues and etc. The conference will be premium networking platform for government authorities, utility operators, engineering contractors, technology and equipment venders, consultants, and others to share knowledge and exchange ideas to support power developments in Myanmar.

We sincerely welcome all concerned industrial players to participate in this event.
