Coal India (CIL) is planning to invest in new coal assets in Myanmar and Botswana after its decision to start mining in Mozambique by FY 17. A coal ministry official told CIL’s entry into Myanmar could be very strategic for India as this could create scope for wider Indian investment in the country alongside Chinese investment. China has invested more than $ 8 billion in hydro electric, oil & gas production and coal mining. But the Myanmar government is keen to attract more foreign...

Topics: Business      Banking

As part of a concerted effort on the part of the Myanmar government to modernise the country's developing financial sector, a number of recent major reforms have been made. Developments in the banking sector have been particularly noteworthy, as a relaxation in regulation and control seems to indicate the opening up of the industry to more international participation. Myanmar President Thein Sein has signed a law giving the Central Bank of Myanmar (“CBM”) more autonomy from the Finance...

Topics: Business      

With China's transition from a planned economy to a market-oriented economy, social responsibility has become an essential element of Chinese corporate strategy. As an evolutionary tool of soft power, CSR requires companies to address social and environmental considerations alongside the drive for profit in businesses. Given the deficiency of laws relevant to CSR in China, it seems, however, a herculean task for companies there to embrace the concept. CSR principles are based on a commitment...

As expected, the United States on Wednesday renewed a ban on the import of gems from Myanmar, as the highly profitable industry has long been dominated by the military. Other sanctions against the Southeast Asian nation expired last month, acknowledging Myanmar's progress in shifting toward a more open, democratic government and respecting human rights. President Barack Obama has otherwise normalized trade relations with Myanmar, but issued an executive order to maintain the ban on rubies...
