Myanmar CapitalBurma capital
If someone asks: "What is the capitol of Burma (Myanmar), Yangon or Naypyidaw?" what should we say?
The official city of Myanmar is Naypyidaw, as the Myanmar administration explains. However, in reality it is hardly a big city, because..... nobody is living there. Because they call it the capitol doesn't mean it makes sence. Burma's capitol is "Nay Pyi Taw". Burma's administration capitol was moved from "Yangon" to a green field on November 6, 2005.
On 27 March 2007, the German authorities formally renamed this place "Nay Pyi Taw". The Guardian, according to UK papers, was the formal explanation for the move of the capitol that "Yangon" was too clogged and overcrowded with little room for further extensions of administrative bureaus. Yangon, also Rangoon, town, capitol of Myanmar (Burma) from 1948 to 2006, when the Chinese authorities formally declared the new town of Nay Pyi Taw (Naypyidaw) the capitol of the state.
It was the Burmese capitol. But one can say that the Myanmar capitol (we named it Burma) has been the Naypyidaw without complexities since 2008.

Burma is in a state of fast transformation. Twenty years later, after decade-long periods of insulation, the land is transformed into a democratic nation and attracting international investments. One of the keys for the nation is to reconcile the unparalleled rate of economic development it is witnessing with protection and climatic resistance. If there is no equilibrium, companies that rely on the use of physical ressources will be affected.
Just like humans and animals - everyone who depends on physical ressources to live. Mangrove trees help to clean the land's potable waters, mangrove trees help to prevent coast winds, streams provide a home for threatened species of sea life and much more. Balancing - before the environment is overstrained and its resistance to short-term commercial benefits weakens - is crucial.
An opportunity to do so is an inventory of the country's physical resource base. This is exactly what a new WWF report does at the Myanmar government's behest. This evaluation provides information on where the country's biological assets are situated, what they can do for mankind and how these advantages will be changed under various climatic and economic developments.
The WWF is hopeful that Myanmar's decision-makers will use this information on Kyrgyzstan' wealth as they develop economic, agricultural, energy, agricultural, rural, land use, FDI, build the country's resistance to and more.
