World Bank cuts Myanmar's growth forecast to 1% as conflict worsens

12/6/2024 12:24
        Economic growth in conflict-torn Myanmar will be around 1% for the 2024-2025 fiscal year, the World Bank said on Wednesday, as escalating violence, labour shortages and a depreciating currency make it harder to do business.
        
        In December, the World Bank had projected Myanmar's economy would grow by around 2% during the period, after estimated GDP growth of 1% in the fiscal year that ended in March 2024.
        
        The World Bank said in a report, "The downward revision in projected growth for FY2024/25 is largely due to the persistence of high inflation and constraints on access to labour, foreign exchange, and electricity, all of which are likely to have larger impacts on activity than was previously expected."
        
        The Southeast Asian country of about 55 million people has been in political and economic turmoil since a 2021 coup when the military ousted an elected civilian government, ending a decade of tentative democratic and economic reform.
        
        Faced with a widening armed resistance against its rule, Myanmar's junta earlier this year announced a conscription plan to replenish its depleted military manpower.
