Ho Chi Minh City-based C.T Group has submitted the plans to develop Vietnam – Myanmar Industrial Zone (IZ) in a recent meeting with H.E. Nyan Tun - Vice President of Myanmar, according to a local newspaper. The IZ will accommodate many Vietnamese manufacturers, since it will offer them “the opportunities to expand the commodity market into Myanmar by directly relocating production facilities to this industrial zone,” the Naypyidaw-based New Light of Myanmar newspaper reported.

DESPITE A RECENT CHILL, MYANMAR’S DEMOCRACY NEEDS CHINESE INVESTMENT

Topics: Economy      

It turns out that Myanmar may need China after all. Reformers had hoped that the transition from a military regime to democracy would bring in new foreign investment to help Myanmar wean itself from support from its massive neighbor to the north , which was its main patron during decades of international isolation. But it hasn’t quite turned out that way. In fact, plummeting Chinese investment in the wake of Myanmar’s pivot to the West—along with protests over profit sharing and pollution...

Myanmar is a strange, two-sided coin. On the one hand, the country’s recent inflow of foreign investment and the government’s economic reforms seem to promise great growth for the impoverished Southeast Asian nation; on the other hand, genocides, protests, religious clashes and sectarian violence continue to afflict the country. While it will without a doubt be challenging to invest in Myanmar, responsible foreign investment has the potential to alleviate some of the non-economic troubles the...

RANGOON — At a street corner in Rangoon’s Kamayut Township, a young man does what would have been odd in his country just three or four years ago—he lowers his head, fixes his eyes on his smartphone, swipes the screen and smiles. He is probably in his 20s, dressed casually in a black striped shirt and dark jeans, which makes him stand out in the crowd of people wearing traditional longyis. Still, with the phone in hand, he is not uncommon among the Burmese of his generation, especially those...
