Myanmar Tyrcoon can benefit from U.S. penalties changes
Just the previous evening, the United States had blacklisted six of its corporations from the Treasury Department, which is unlikely to affect the tycoon's commercial imperium. Barack Obama's Myanmar Sanction Policies, revised on Tuesday, aim to find a good compromise between individual orientation without subverting developments or preventing US corporations from opening up the US to world trading.
Underscoring how delicate this equilibrium is, the law can profit from recent changes in commercial terms, even if they make it more difficult for it to present itself as an international acceptable tradesman in the vicinity of the new democratically governed state. "Although (sanctions) are not supposed to have a nationwide effect on the land, their planned goals often have an oversized role.... in the control of crucial infrastructures that influence the commerce and operations of citizens," said Nyantha Maw Lin, CEO of management consultants Vriens & Partners in Yangon.
Washington relaxed some limitations on Myanmar on Tuesday, but also reinforced its action against the law by blacking six corporations associated with it and its Asia World alliance. But the black list, which drew a lot of interest in Myanmar, looks like a technicality, as the corporations were already subject to penalties, as they were 50 per cent or more in the possession of Law or Asia World.
The bill was penalized in 2008 for supposed links to the Myanmar army. A more important aspect of the Act was the US ruling to further relax trade barriers through its seaport and airport and to extend for an unspecified period of six months, fixed in December. Jurisprudence is one of the most influential and well-connected business people in Myanmar with strong links to China.
However, he is not loved everywhere at home and abroad because he was allegedly associated with the Myanmar army, which reigned with an unwavering determination until 2011. They also reflect the excessive influence of its commercial empire on Myanmar's economic system and make it difficult to disregard it or impose too harsh penalties, said MEPs.
Last year's US relaxation of penalties against the Law harbor upset the right-wing groups and suspended Obama's election of Myanmar's new envoy. However, it was not enough to get the shipowners to go back to the harbour because they were worried about what would be done after the expiry of the six-month aid.
Trading via the harbour collapsed last year and some shipowners gave it up due to unauthorised competitive transactions. Once the six-month period is over, Law's ports, which are better placed than the competitors and nearer to the economic metropolis of Yangon, are expected to be used by businesses. "Tatsuya "Ricky" Ueki, CEO of MOL Myanmar, which uses the harbour terminals next to Law's, said, "Our clients are aware of penalties, so we can't handle guys like Steven Law or the Asia World Terminals.
Before Tuesday's Tuesday announcements, Asia World said that an extended harbour licence would be beneficial to the group. "Yangon Harbour continues to be an important transport facility that needs to be further developed and invested to cope with increased demand," a corporate officer said by e-mail. When asked about the US ruling to largely maintain most of the penalties during a press briefing on Wednesday, NLD boss Aung San Suu Kyi said she was optimistic that they would decrease over the years.
"I am not scared of penalties because I believe that penalties have been applied for a certain cause and these causes will be eliminated in time," she said. As the deceased dad was Lo Hsing Han, who was a hero king-pin and estate agent, Mr. L. Law recently constructed and operated the Naypyitaw International Airports, the country's capitol, and Yangon, where he recently revealed a new $660 million Asia World building and financing facility.
During a generous ceremony last months to mark the twentieth jubilee of the opening of the Asia World harbor terminals, visitors dining on the island ofabalone, watching a short film about the Yangon harbor story with quotations from Rudyard Kipling. Mr Sandar Min, Chair of the Yangon Provincial Parliament's Finance, Planning and Economic Committee and also a member of the NLD, addressed the evening meal.
However, she dissociated herself and the group from the law and said that her attendance at the ceremony was a technicality.
