This chapter captures the possible role that Myanmar could play in BCIM. She is poised to utilise her geo-strategic importance arising out of sharing borders with East, South and Southeast Asia. Myanmar hopes to spin around her geo-strategic importance by embracing investment from all the neighbouring countries including Japan. Being the meeting point of China’s Outward Policy on the one hand and India’s Look East Policy on the other – with winds of political change blowing, Myanmar is destined to play a significant role in BCIM sub-regional cooperation.
