About the project

 

The OECD has worked with key Asian partners for a number of years to promote responsible investment and RBC. Under this new programme, implemented together with the International Labour Organisation and the European Union, the OECD will contribute its extensive expertise on trade and investment and on risk-based RBC due diligence to support in-country policy developments and action to create an enabling environment for Responsible Business Conduct (RBC), to boost industry capacity and to raise awareness of the importance of RBC.

 

The programme will be undertaken over 3 years (2018-2020) in partnership with China and five other partner economies, namely Japan, Thailand, Viet Nam, Philippines, and Myanmar.

 

Responsible supply chains in Myanmar

 

Myanmar and OECD have been collaborating since the opening of Myanmar’s economy in 2011. The 2014 OECD Investment Policy Review of Myanmar was one of the first international initiatives carried out with the Myanmar government in the area of investment policy and included a strong RBC component. Activities in Myanmar will focus on supporting an in-depth analysis of enabling policies for RBC as part of the 2nd OECD Investment  Policy Review, expected to be completed in 2019-2020, as well as working with businesses on the implementation of due diligence. Activities will also include supporting RBC in the seafood and agriculture sectors.
