Executive summary on national assessment of women's entrepreneurship development in Myanmar

The overarching goal of Myanmar’s national assessment of Women’s Entrepreneurship Development (WED) is to identify deficiencies in the conditions that affect the emergence of women entrepreneurs, and the ability of existing women-owned enterprises to access resources and support they need to secure their sustainability and growth on an “equal opportunities” basis.

The International Labour Organization’s (ILO) WED assessment methodology is based on a review of six framework conditions. These have been identified as key influencing factors in creating a favourable environment for women’s entrepreneurship. These lead to the formulation of a set of recommendations for national stakeholders.
