Burma where is itMyanmar, where is it?
Let's start with the name. SOLDATES AND DIPLOMATY IN BURMA: UNDERSTANDING THE EXTERNAL RELATIONS OF THE PRÄTORIAN STATE OF BURMESIA. However, it is not the only problem country in Asia. As a Rohingya woman, Ayesha lived with her husband in the Arakan region of Burma until her husband was killed by extremist Buddhists.
Where' s the World Bank while Burma's on fire?
However, the Burmese authorities remain pitiful in silence as the Burmese military force is perpetrating horrors against the Muslim people in reaction to the attack by an Rohingya group of gunmen on the outstations of the policemen. Rohingya, who have been suffering from state oppression for many years, are one of the impoverished and most marginalised ethnical groups in the Dominion.
In the last two-week period, the United Nations estimate that 313,000 Rohingya from Burma's west Rakhine state have taken shelter in neighbouring Bangladesh. They have described murders, bombardments and arsons in their communities, all the characteristics of a political offensive of "ethnic cleansing". In Rohingya village, new satellites received and analysed by Human Rights Watch show common burns.
By 2012, the World Banc played down the Rakhine state as" localised cases of localised violence". However, since 2015, after the critique, she has realized that the Myanmar authorities are promoting institutionalised Rohingyaism. The President of the World Banque Jim Yong Kim should condemn the abuse of the Myanmar authorities. It should stress how this assault on the Rohingya people undermines the government's commitment to promote socioeconomic growth, jeopardise the Bank's investment and undermine its two objectives of eradicating extremist livelihoods and promoting common wellbeing.
It should also make a public offering to support the implementation of the Rakhine State Advisory Commission's proposals under the leadership of former UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan. The irony is that the EBRD is silent about the Rohingya as the World Banks and the UN are preparing to publish their showcase reports on the evolution and avoidance of violence.
Kim Jim Yong has stressed how poor institutionalised discriminatory treatment is for individuals, communities and the economy. First of all, he should speak out against the terrible state of affairs in Burma.
Thinking about our trip to Myanmar (Burma), the democracy roadmap and the election process
Recently, for example, we have learnt more about the impact of a severe hibernation on the life of the commoners in Tajikistan and China. While we are studying these tales, pictures of the persons we have encountered are overlaid with a message that we could otherwise look at from a distance.
Now we also continue to Myanmar (Burma). Only a few leagues ago, the local regime announced another "roadmap to democracy" and election in 2010. Unfortunately, our recent Myanmar trip has shown us that the sceptics are in a better position to assess the current state.
We' ve been interested in Myanmar for some time. This anxiety gradually gave way to hopes when we saw the scene of stubborn friars and local people who protested against rising prices and stood up for their liberty. Last months we brought our hopes to Myanmar. Our security never seemed in doubt during our trip, but it was the state of Myanmar's path to democratization.
Myanmar wanted to do this for us. Faced with all this, Myanmar's inhabitants are hard-working, imaginative and ingenious. Much of Myanmar's power would run rather sporadic most of the days and would normally be turned off at twilight. Since daytime lighting and warmth are better available, it often makes sense to save power for the benefit of dark and cold afternoons.
The cynicism we have spoken to has said that Myanmar's power redistribution policy is linked to the commercial interests of senior civil servants with links to the oil-industries. You proposed a basic dynamic: turn off the power (light and heat) at nights and humans will be compelled to run diesel-powered alternators to meet their needs.
Isn' it like a pauper state? "that Myanmar is not a destitute state. Myanmar has resources: huge areas of farmland, pristine woodland, precious stones and golden and methane mines. In Myanmar, the fact that many stay desperate and destitute does not seem to be due to indigenous idleness or scarcity of man.
In Myanmar's various ethnical groups, however, individuals have been relatively hard-working and ingenious. It seems more about what the state has to do with the available economic means and how it "manages" the business world than with the collapse of its nation or state. This means that the ordinary citizen does not profit from the country's physical assets.
As you can see, the supply decreases when the goverment is exporting it; the price rises and buying strength decreases. Whilst natural resource extraction took place, in return, degraded infrastructures and declining service provision (electricity, healthcare and others) were provided. It also seems the administration enjoys wasting its boondoggle ressources, such as moving the Yangon (Rangoon) capitol to Naypyitaw, a Pleasantville-style neighborhood of suburb dreaming, subdivision and empty, well-lit highways.
We were not particularly optimistic when we learned that the 2010 election announcement by the Burmese government was part of Myanmar's roadmap to democratization. Would not the opening of the web, the return of newsmen to the countryside and the release of some celebrity politicians offering a few footsteps on the true path to democratisation? Hopes for genuine changes?
We believe there is a land that can affect Myanmar for true transformation because of its economical power and closeness to Myanmar. In view of all this, we are happy that we have been to Myanmar. and we wanted to see what it was like to live for them. By doing this and spend our funds sensibly and prudently, we are optimistic that we have done more for the common man than for the state.
We look forward to share more of Myanmar - its varied population, its cuisine and civilization - through our writings and work.
