The Relex team held a cooperative event with reputed Myanmar NGO "Community Agency for Rural Development" (http://cadmm.org/) on digital transformation via blockchain-based funding and other methods for the development of the digital economy in this frontier region on Feb. 9, 2019, at the heels of Relex having been granted approval to conduct its investment funding from the jurisdiction of the Republic of Belarus (https://goo.gl/dZ57w5).

During the event, the speakers spoke on digital transformation, and the participants engaged in immersive discussion with the speakers at times, and event participants as well as the Relex community learned helpful information on how the Relex ecosystem can play its part to achieve some of the aims discussed during the seminar. Speakers included names such as:

-Alexei D. Voskressenski, Director of Center for Integrated Sinology and Regional Projects at the Moscow State Institute of International Relations (MGIMO)

-Victor Kane, Department Head, Asia Graduate Center, School of Business and Management, RMIT Vietnam

-Paulo Casaca, former European Parliament representative (Portugal)

-Vladimir Korovkin, Head of Digital Studies, Skolkovo Moscow School of Management

-Oksana Lozytskaya, Head of Relex Belarus. Oksana spoke of her experience advising on Decree 08 (Decree on Development of Digital Economy)

-U Min Zaw Oo, Executive Director for the Myanmar Institute for Peace and Security

-U Nay Aung, CEO of Oway Ride

-Ravindra Jain, Executive Member of India-Myanmar Chamber of Commerce

-U Thein Tun Oo, Director, Thayninga Institute for Strategic Studies

-Sten te Vogt, Economist, Mekong Economics

-Ms. Shrabana Barua, Fellow Associate, Nepal-Institute of International Cooperation and Engagement

-Andrew Wrobel, Emerging Europe Alliance

There was participation of people from different backgrounds; from investment, to economics, to media, to political figures, to think tank heads (Siegfried Wolf), to some of the most key people within the modern day Myanmar reform and growth story of the country (Min Zaw Oo).

Furthermore, not just making progress on the technological and financial side of things, participants came away with a deeper understanding of the political situation in Myanmar as well, and speakers and participants alike exchanged ideas for solutions in which to set Myanmar on a more secure and prosperous path for its future. A road building project in the Western Myanmar state of Chin was discussed, and participants learned how to invest into the Relex Capital platform to help build this road project initiative from the Community Agency for Rural Development, one of the sponsors of the event.

Additionally, participants learned about the India-Myanmar-Thailand highway, the developmental opportunities and challenges facing this megaproject, and the ways that participants and speakers could engage with Relex on projects along this corridor. Current projects at the time that Relex was working on in Myanmar involved a university and the Myanmar road building project in Chin state. For relevance at a glance, the Indian government estimates an extra $200 billion USD of economic activity annually transacted via this new economic corridor, one of which stretches from India to Myanmar, and then all the way to Vietnam.

Discussions were had during the event for Relex to engage with MGIMO (Moscow) and RMIT (Ho Chi Minh City) at some time in the foreseeable future at their respective university campuses.

The day after the event concluded, the Relex team unveiled two new projects from Myanmar onto the www.relexcapital.com platform, namely Carlton East and Grumman Holdings.

Carlton East is a real estate project from Zayar Properties, and is currently being funded on the Relex platform. The project sits on the bank of Yangon's Bago River, and enjoys support from the local Department of Urban Housing and Development (DUHD).

For more information on these projects, one can visit www.relexcapital.com for more info.
