Myanmar Capital PopulationPeople of Myanmar capital
Yangon, Myanmar's capital, has been shaped by the changes in recent years. In particular, the founding of three new cities by the governing State Law and Order Restoration Council (SLORC) in the latter 1980s more than doubled the area of the town. With the speed with which the youngest new cities were founded, their greatness and the dramatic changes in the form of the cities caused by the foundation of these new cities or townships, they differ from the new cities that emerged in the 1950' and early 1960'.
Yangon's two main drivers of economic development, demographics and spatial development, are at the heart of this paper, which highlights the policy dimensions of Myanmar's municipal development.
