Myanmar Premier, along with Siam Premier of Thailand, has been involved in a landmark transaction under the name of the Dawei Special Economic Zone Development Project. As legal advisor to the Ministry of Finance of Thailand in structuring the Dawei Special Economic Zone Development Project and coordinating the framework between agencies of Myanmar and Thai Governments, Myanmar Premier, in collaboration with the Royal Thai Government and the Government of the Republic of the Union of Myanmar, is structuring and incorporating the Dawei SEZ Development Company Limited. The project has been structured through, (1) the Neighbouring Countries Economic Development Cooperation Agency (Public Organization) representing the Thai side, and (2) the Foreign Economic Relations Department representing the Myanmar side. Myanmar Premier has also been responsible for the preparation and provision of documentation and the drafting of necessary agreements related to the project.
The firm has also assisted Thai Beverage Public Company Limited through its offshore subsidiary intending to invest in a distillery plant in Myanmar jointly with a local partner by setting up a joint venture company. Each party was required to pledge its shares in favor of the other party to secure certain obligations under the joint venture agreement. An escrow agent was appointed to keep pledged shares in custody. We advised the Thai investor on Myanmar legal issues related to the creation, perfection, validity and enforceability of share pledge and the escrow establishment as well as drafted an escrow agreement.
