Fiscal Decentralization in Myanmar: Towards a Roadmap for Reform
The Myanmar Development Resource Institute’s Centre for Economic and Social Development (MDRI‐CESD) and The Asia Foundation are pleased to present this fifth volume in the Subnational Governance in Myanmar Discussion Paper Series.
Fiscal decentralization forms the backbone of Myanmar’s efforts to strengthen public services, encourage development across the country, and secure peace and stability. The country has made important first steps in the decentralization process, but as yet these do not form a consistent framework for distributing budgetary resources. This discussion paper by Hamish Nixon and Cindy Joelene intends to inform the wider discussion about how best to proceed with fiscal decentralization in Myanmar.
