dc.description.abstract Alec Christie is an Australian qualified lawyer with extensive legal experience in the region. Since June 1995, when he opened LWA Consultants, he has been permanently resident in Myanmar and has advised on, among other things, most of the major infrastructure projects in the country and the establishment and ongoing operations of mining joint ventures, energy projects, finance, and security issues and residential, hotel, and office developments. Abstract: After nearly thirty years of self imposed isolation, Myanmar has reemerged as a significant potential destination for foreign investment. One of the key attractions of Myanmar as a destination for foreign investment is its legal system and historical commitment to the rule of law. With ASEAN membership and increasing levels of foreign investment in Myanmar, use of its legal system by foreign investors and their counsel has grown. The aim of this article is to outline, for both investors and legal professionals in other countries throughout the region, Myanmar's legal system and its practical operation in the area of commercial litigation, including the enforcement of foreign judgments and arbitral awards. en_US
