About Us


Nine Questions
to our Founder

‘I have lived and worked here through two decades of military rule, and almost a decade of elected civilian government. During that time, the external image of Myanmar has oscillated between black to white to black again.  Seen from the inside, the reality has always been more complex.

There are many shades of grey, as well as gold, for this is still known as The Golden Land.  The gold I have found is the people of Myanmar. They are resilient, brave, determined, humorous. And they want to be connected to the outside world. They want to see their country grow sustainably. And I have seen companies contributing to that sustainable growth, and having a positive impact on people’s lives, providing they operate responsibly and understand the local context. 

That’s what keeps me here’.
