Project Background

The USAID Responsible Investment and Trade Activity aims to promote civilian ownership of the Myanmar economy by increasing the share held by responsible, accountable and transparent firms. RITA will engage international and domestic private sector firms and civil society actors across multiple sectors to facilitate deals and business partnerships, strengthen regional economic integration, and improve business accountability, transparency, and competitiveness. The project will use a facilitative ecosystem-strengthening approach that will increase trade and investment and improve corporate governance practices in Myanmar, supported by a $3.8 million Investment and Technical Assistance Facility that will allow RITA to deploy a flexible, tailored mix of pay-for-results subcontracts, grants, and technical assistance to partner firms. This structure facilitates our private sector engagement strategy, avoids market distortion, and prioritizes sustainability by building local capacity within the business ecosystem.
