MGO's Early Warnings Would Have Saved Investors in Myanmar Aviation

Challenge: On July 30, 2014, 11 months after trumpeting its plan to invest $25 million in Myanmar's Asian Wings Airways, All Nippon Airways walked away. From the start, local media had reported Asian Wings' alleged ties with Tay Za, a connection the airline denied. Japan’s All Nippon didn't mention those ties when it canceled the deal, citing instead the small Myanmar market and, as MGO highlighted two months earlier, rising competition.

Solution: Monitor Global Outlook's forward-looking intelligence warned early on about risks in Myanmar aviation that would have helped investors carefully weigh their exposure to the industry and review the viability of foreign bids for contracts to build and upgrade Myanmar airports.

Results: Aware of Myanmar's opaque business environment and US Treasury sanctions, MGO customers would have taken steps to avoid triggering fines of $250,000 – and up to 20 years of prison time – for sanctions violations.
