The Myanmar Futures Exchange: Development at the Cross-Roads

by Alisha Bhagat

ABSTRACT

This report describes the methods and findings used at the 2014 Myanmar Futures Exchange (MFE), a futures workshop that engaged with government, NGOs, religious groups, and academics in Yangon, Myanmar. The MFE presented a unique opportunity to brainstorm strategies for the future of economic development in Myanmar with a cross-section of the Yangon community. A team from the East-West Center and University of Hawaii developed a unique methodology involving futures thinking, leadership, and personal action to engage with the group. This report describes the methodology used, the outcomes of the workshop, and implications for further futures work.
