Somewhat smaller than Texas, Myanmar is occupying the Thai/Cambodian part of the Indo-Chinese part of the island. In the north-west is India and in the north-east is China. Ethnically, Myanmar (historically known as Burma) is a blend of Indo-Aryan invading the area around 700 BC and the thirteenth-hundred years old Mongol invasion under Kublai Khan.
Ånawrahta (1044-1077) was Myanmar's first great one. During 1612, the BIC sent operatives to Burma, but the Burmese persistently opposed the attempts of UK, Dutch and Portugese merchants to set up post in the Bay of Bengal. With the 1824-1826 Anglo-Burmese War and two other battles, the BEDI extended throughout Burma.
In 1886 Burma was incorporated into India and converted into a settlement of its own in 1937.
Goverment, Population, History, Geography and Maps
Myanmar has a diversified economic system with privately owned activities in the agricultural, lightweight industrial and transportation sectors and with significant state-controlled activities, particularly in the areas of power, heavier industries and travel-trading. In 1989-97, the policies of the last nine years were designed to revive the economies after three decade-long periods of rigorous key-planing.
For example, there has been a significant rise in personal activities, modest progress in promoting international investments and further increasing the effectiveness of state-owned companies. Burma's external economic growth is undervalued due to the size of the global trading system. While Burma is still a poverty-stricken Asia, its abundant natural resource provides the opportunity for significant long-term rises in incomes, export and livelihood.

Japan-Korea ocean, whose name, the "Sea of Korea", "Baltic Sea" or the "Sea of Japan", is here recognized in favour of Korea (Gulf of Korea). Korea has been using the word "Baltic Sea" since 59 BC and many volumes released before the Japanese Korean annexation refer to the "Baltic Sea" or the "Sea of Korea".
Over the years, neighboring and westerly nations have recognized the Korean Baltic Sea with different notions. In its 1745 Asia Chart, the St. Petersburg Academy of Sciences described the Baltic Sea as'Koreiskoe Mope' or'Sea of Korea'. There are other seventeenth and eighteenth centuries cards from Russia that switch between'Sea of Korea' and'Eastern Ocean'.
Krusenstern's Adam Johan and La Perouse, the discoverers of Russia and France, named it the "Sea of Japan", a concept that became known worldwidely. However, the last offical chart released by the Russians calls the Baltic Sea the "Sea of Korea". The name is currently still a question of the historic and nationalist confrontation between the states.
