About Myanmar - Overview - BBC News
In March 2011, a nominal civil administration under the leadership of President Thein Sein was established, acting as general and then premier under the Junta. One fourth of the two Houses of Parliament is reserved for the army, and three important ministers - home office, defense and frontier issues - must be filled by general leaders.
In April 2012, the EU followed the example of the US by removing all non-military penalties and providing Myanmar with more than $100 million in overseas assistance during the year. Burmese or Bamar, who are related to Tibetans and Chinese, are the biggest national group. Counterinsurgency attacks have disrooted many a thousand civilians. What?
Myanmar is an important exporting country and the army is also charged with massive trade in smack. Myanmar's abundance of buddhist shrines has spurred the growing tourist industries, which are the most evident area for prospective overseas investments.
Letter to Myanmar - Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade
Since 1952 Australia has maintained and maintained political ties with Myanmar. Myanmar, one of the impoverished nations in the area, is going through an unparalleled, comprehensive and provocative series of reforms: a democratic transformation, economical and peaceful talks to end the decade-long clash with the country's people. By area Myanmar is the biggest land area on the continent of Southeast Asia.
Burma is one of the impoverished nations in the area. 37.5 percent of the country's people live in extreme poverty. 2.5 percent of the country's inhabitants live in the poor. The geo-strategic situation and the outlook for local commerce on the border with China, India, Thailand, Bangladesh and Laos - 40 percent of the world's total populace - are convincing. Other important policy reform measures since 2011 have included the freeing of many policy detainees and the adoption of legislation to ease press scrutiny and increase policy involvement, labor law and free speech.
Reform has started to open and regenerate Myanmar's economies. Increasing export, consumer spending and investments have led to over eight percent expansion in 2014-15, and Myanmar is expected to initiate a longer phase of fast growing economies. A rich range of fossil fuels such as crude oils, gases and precious stones has the capacity to promote sustainable business performance.
The Australian authorities also underline the importance of solving the Rakhine state and protecting the human right of all those in it.
