Summary of publication
This report assesses the performance of Australian aid in Myanmar from July 2017 to June 2018 against the objectives of the Myanmar Aid Investment Plan 2015-2020. In 2017-18, Australia provided $84.2 million in official development assistance to Myanmar.
The report finds that our flagship education investments continued to perform well, including by improving the school learning environment for more than 10 million Myanmar students. However, the slowing of democratic and economic reform momentum, delays in the peace dialogue, and ongoing conflict made it difficult to achieve the results we expected in promoting peace and stability and inclusive economic growth.
