Breaking new MyanmarDeparture into the new Myanmar
The Myanmar Society for Applied Geosciences e.V.
Myanmar's opening in recent years has led to a constant flow of tourism, policy experts, engineering consultants, graduates and overseas companies. Decades of isolating large parts of the globe have left Myanmar's tradition and peoples relatively untouched by modernisation, although this is now a fast onset.
The geoscientists are also fascinated by Myanmar's geosciences and its possibilities. Although rich in minerals and nature, much of the nation is still relatively closed to the public for research and practice. Burma also is suffering from degrading forests, inadequateland use and release of mine and industry waste and farm waste water.
The excursion concentrates on areas of interest to geoscientists, while the landscape offers an unforgettable setting. On November 1, 2017, we will optionally host a Pre-Conference Workshop for everyone interested in naval geoscience. For further information please refer to our "Pre-Conference Maritime Geo-sciences Workshop" page.
Australian tied up in Myanmar trial
Ross Dunkley, a bound editor from Australia, has come to Myanmar for drugs offences. Ross Dunkley, an author from Australia, was arrested in a Myanmar tribunal in bonds and fetters at the beginning of his lawsuit for drugs allegations that could see him imprisoned unrestricted.
