After achieving independence in 1948, Burma (Myanmar since 1989) sought help formulating an economic development plan for the country. Economists from Robert R. Nathan Associates spent more than six years in Rangoon advising the Economic and Social Board and the Ministry of National Planning and helping devise a plan for Burma’s economic and social development, establish a sound tax system, and create efficient government services. For the first two years the U.S. government covered costs; from 1953 on, the firm worked directly for the Government of the Union of Burma.
Lakhbir Singh retires and Susan B. Chodakewitz, first CEO from outside Nathan Associates, joins the firm in April 2015.
