Myanmar has the distinction of being one of the fastest-growing economies in the world, clocking more than 8% annual growth for 2016, according to some estimates. The country's growth trajectory is likely to continue upwards, thanks to a low economic base (roughly $65 billion), a young population (at about 54 million), and an abundance of natural resources. It is a frontier economy at the forefront of its peers as it breaks out of a dark and authoritarian past.
