Frontier Myanmar is now FMR Research

It’s been an eventful three years for Frontier Myanmar Research.

We’ve reached a number of milestones since our 2014 launch, and now have three dynamic subscription services covering an array of industries.

Our Myanmar Real Estate and Construction Monitor went live back in summer 2014, and was followed a year later by the Myanmar Energy Monitor, while our new Myanmar Transport Infrastructure Monitor was launched in early 2017.

We’re continuing with our mission of providing in-depth, accurate and useful information on the Myanmar market – though we will now be doing so under a new brand, as FMR Research and Advisory.

FMR’s research team continues to monitor and uncover the latest developments in the strategically vital sectors of real estate and construction, energy, and transport infrastructure.

Some of our recently published Q&As with key industry players, for example, help provide clarity in an opaque market. They include business leaders such as Maersk’s Flora Pintusoontorn, U Sithu Moe Myint from MPRL and MAPCO’s U Ye Min Aung.

In addition to our three monitor services, FMR continues to undertake customised research projects and is actively involved in a range of events. Some highlights are as follows:

Custom Research

FMR continues to work on specific research projects for local and international clients, spanning an array of industries. Our team is able to harness our extensive data and resource library, as well as on-the-ground interview capabilities, to conduct in-depth analysis, either as part of on a larger project, or as the main advisory actor.

Some recent examples include a country-wide fuel distribution and retail study, a detailed analysis of the economic and demographic outlook for a specific state, an assessment of the serviced apartment and office market in Yangon, a review of Myanmar’s gas industry and structure, and an analysis of key government legislation concerning urban development for an international contractor.

In the Media

FMR remains a go-to source of information for various publications on our sectors of expertise. Some recent examples include:

“Bringing the power”, Frontier Magazine

“Myanmar shuffles energy, finance officials amid slowing growth”, Reuters

“China in talks to sell electricity to Myanmar amid warming ties”, Reuters


FMR is regularly involved in major local and regional events, whether as partners, attendees or speakers. Our team presented at this year’s Green Energy Summit, speaking on the issue of the electricity tariff, and at a French Chamber of Commerce event covering the Myanmar Oil and Gas Market.

We also recently participated in a roundtable on Myanmar at the Unlocking Solar Capital event in Singapore. We continue to collaborate on events with a range of partners, including law firm VDB Loi, the British Chamber of Commerce, and GIZ, and have made appearances at the Euromoney Myanmar Conference, the Myanmar LNG Myanmar Conference, and Baker McKenzie’s “Moving Ahead: Perspectives on Developing Transportation Infrastructure”.


Last but not least, we moved to a new office over the summer.
