Myanmar : empowering people for inclusive growth : Myanmar country partnership framework for the period 2015-2017 (English)

This Country Partnership Framework (CPF) will succeed the Myanmar Interim Strategy Note (FY13-14) and will be the first full country partnership framework for Myanmar since 19842. This CPF aims to outline how the full range of resources of the World Bank Group can help the country and its people in this transition and in achieving sustainable poverty reduction and shared prosperity. In doing so, the CPF draws on the findings of the recent Systematic Country Diagnostic carried out by the World Bank Group, lessons learned from implementation since the beginning of WBG re-engagement in 2012, and extensive consultations with a wide range of stakeholders conducted in 2014. Through this CPF the WBG will accelerate and scale up engagement with Myanmar to support two critical transformations underway: (i) towards openness and integration; and (ii) toward empowerment and inclusion. Together, these two socio-economic shifts offer a historic opportunity and hold the key to reduce poverty and boost shared prosperity in Myanmar. Beginning in 2011, Myanmar launched fundamental political and economic reforms aimed at increasing openness, empowerment, and inclusion. The success of Myanmar’s reforms will depend on the extent of progress with inclusion and integration, so all of Myanmar’s people benefit. The key challenge will be to ensure that the political, economic and peacemaking transformation gives voice to the whole population, benefits the country’s most needy and vulnerable, and develops the non-state sector to support broad-based economic growth. In supporting Myanmar’s unique transformation, the World Bank Group will leverage the combined knowledge and financing resources of IDA, IFC and MIGA. In doing so, this CPF is grounded in a vision of development as supporting the dual transformation to openness and integration, and to empowerment and inclusion. The CPF sets out a planned program of activities to achieve these goals to reduce poverty and boost shared prosperity.
