Technical Assistance Project on COVID-19 Response: Developing an Economic Assessment and Strategy

Technical Assistance Project on COVID-19 Response: Developing an Economic Assessment and Strategy

The DaNa Facility, International Trade Center, and United Nations Capital Development Fund are implementing a technical assistance project to assist the government in assessing and responding to the real sector impacts of the COVID-19 crisis – on financial inclusion, trade and investment, micro, small and medium enterprise development, agribusiness, and private sector development.

In addition to advising the Economic Remedy Committee on COVID-19 impacts and policy direction, the technical assistance team is also interacting closely with Ministry of Planning, Finance and Industry (MOPFI) on the soon to be launched “COVID-19 Comprehensive Response Plan”, which seeks to mitigate the economic impacts posed by COVID-19 while establishing the foundations to facilitate Myanmar’s rapid and sustainable economic recovery.
