BUSINESS – 78 percent of all FDI pledges materialise: DICA

Some 78 percent of all proposals for Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) in Burma have come to fruition, while 22 percent did not materialise for various reasons, said the Directorate of Investment and Company Administration (DICA). Data released by DICA shows a total of US$46.4 billion pledged by foreign firms, although only $36.4 billion came through. China, Hong Kong, Singapore, South Korea and Thailand are currently the top investors in Burma.
