MAP Myanmar Diagnostic 2018


The initial Making Access Possible (MAP) Diagnostic was developed in Myanmar in 2014 based on the 2013 FinScope demand survey. Following this, a Financial Inclusion Roadmap was subsequently developed and it has been partially implemented over the past three years (2016–2018). This Diagnostic was prepared as of November 2018. Given the fast-changing pace of Myanmar’s financial markets, the limited life of demand-side data, and the need to fine-tune the focus of national financial inclusion activities, a 2018 MAP study was undertaken to update the financial inclusion priorities and generate a revised Roadmap.


The 2018 Myanmar MAP initiative was approved by the Inter-Ministerial Steering Committee (IMSC) in October 2017. The IMSC consists of members representing relevant government departments and agencies, Development Partners and the private sector. The MAP 2018 applies the initial diagnostic report as the starting point for hypotheses and looks at key changes and market developments. It
provides insights into the progress attained in financial inclusion over the past five years. The 2018 MAP aims to improve the focus and relevance of Financial Inclusion (FI) interventions carried out on the basis of the 2014 Myanmar MAP Diagnostic Report, to ensure maximum impact.


The contemporary evidence arising from the 2018 Diagnostic will serve as the foundation for an updated Roadmap, and reassessment to set renewed targets for the years ahead, with an updated Roadmap document, the Myanmar FI Roadmap, 2018–2022.
