[Myanmar] COVID-19 Impact on Employment and Labour Market in Myanmar

The COVID-19 pandemic has upended the livelihoods of workers and families in countries around the world. In Myanmar, the pandemic could ultimately lead to a socioeconomic crisis if the right policies and plans are not well designed and implemented. The COVID-19 Impact Assessment on Employment and Labour Market in Myanmar presents the findings to help guide the Government of Myanmar and the social partners in their unrelenting efforts to support affected businesses and vulnerable workers.

[Myanmar] Assessing the impacts of COVID-19 on Myanmar’s economy: A Social Accounting Matrix (SAM) multiplier approach

The measures taken by the Government of Myanmar to contain the transmission of COVID-19 are a necessary and appropriate response. In-depth analysis of measures of this magnitude on firms, households, government, and the economy as a whole is key to the design of policy interventions that can mitigate the economic losses and support a sustained and robust recovery. The economic losses to Myanmar’s economy in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic will be huge – a drop in production on the order of between 6.4 and 9.0 trillion Kyat – and likely will push the economy into a recession or lead to stagnant growth, at best, for the year. Although lockdown policies provide exemptions for most agricultural activities, linkages to other sectors indirectly affect the agri-food sector significantly. The agricultural sector is expected to contract by between 1.1 and 2.4 percent in 2020, and recovery will be slow. Closure of factories will have a large negative economic impact due to the strong linkage effects between manufacturing and upstream primary agriculture and downstream marketing services. Reopening the manufacturing sector is crucial for economic recovery in Myanmar.


The Social and Economic Impact of COVID-19 in the Asia-Pacific Region

Two concurrent global crises—a health crisis and an economic crisis—are engulfing the world. The necessary public health response to the COVID-19 pandemic is setting in motion a globally synchronized economic recession—leaving no obvious robust engine of global growth. The humanitarian dimension of these two linked events is taking the majority of mankind into uncharted waters. The compound crisis threatens to overwhelm health care systems and government policies. The policy response will determine the human toll of the virus; the length and severity of the downturn; and economic, social and environmental progress towards (or regression away from) attaining the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), placing a large responsibility on policymakers.
