Myanmar Country ProfileBurma Country Profile
The following paper gives an insight into Myanmar for those who want to explore the opportunity to live and work there. Myanmar's economies are being liberalized to create a market-oriented system and to promote the growth of farming, industries and infrastructures. Currency controls were lifted in April 2012 and in 2014 the Central Bank of Myanmar licensed nine non-Myanmar commercial banking institutions to work there.
Burma has a large services section, which represents 46 per cent of GNP. The industrial and farming share of GNP is 28% and 26% respectively. Its main industries are farming, production, construction and transport.
Myanmar's economies continue to be buoyant. Myanmar's outlook for further expansion is relatively good. Countryprofiles investigate economical and politic development in 210 states. The report provides an overview of policy risks and the operating climate and predicts the outlook for the global economies and expected futures so that you can see the macroeconomic climate as the foundation for your strategy-making.

Country Profile USAID Myanmar
Burma has initiated a long and demanding reform of its economy and democrat. Whilst the non-violent transformation to a civil governed state in 2016 was a landmark in Myanmar's long fight for democratisation, significant remaining issues will be addressed, especially after the 2017 Rakhine state outbreak. In Myanmar, the United States is dedicated to enhancing the well-being and well-being of all Myanmar's peoples and to promoting a democratically integrated transformation that will lead to the country's integral growth.
The USAID is committed to strengthening Myanmar's democracy, promoting and protecting the protection of fundamental freedoms, reducing inter-communal conflicts, supporting integrated business growth and providing essential public service, and improving public well-being and wellbeing.
Sandbags and almost 50 per cent thick wood covers the wonderful scenery of the South East Asiatic land of Myanmar, also known as Burma. However, after decade-long periods of separation under a dictatorial regime, this predominantly buddhistic state of 56,890,418 inhabitants is experiencing drastic political, economic and social change, and the swift destruction of forests through intensified farming, clearing and coal mines could have disastrous effects on the natural world.
Whilst the people of the United Nations are heading in a favourable trajectory - the election of their first non-military presidency in 2016 in half a hundred years - the army still has power and is being examined by the UN High Commission for Human Rights for cruel assaults on Rohingya Muslims, an ethnical group. In 1948 the state gained independence and U Nu became prime minister until a 1962 army putsch under the leadership of Gen Ne Win ousted the regime and replaced it with a socialist program party.
During the 1980s, the Communist parties limited the freedoms of minority and non-Indigenous people by depriving them of full nationality and the right to stand for election. Sown in 1988, Aung San Suu Kyi headed pro-democracy demonstrations and the creation of the National League for Democracy. Aung San Suu Kyi is one of the leading figures in the nation's democratic movement.
However, the effort was suppressed when the army juntas took action against demonstrators, killing tens of millions and placing Aung San Suu Kyi under home recap. In spite of several insurgencies and election campaigns in support of the National League for Democracy over the next few years, the army stayed under surveillance, violated people' s right and attracted criticisms and financial penalties from the USA and Europe.
The junta's controls have weakened in 2011, followed by a number of increasingly free polls. Now free Aung San Suu Kyi is currently a State Councillor because she is banned by statute from presidential office, but she works in close cooperation with Htin Kyaw. Year round Buddha celebrations are a large part of Myanmar's cultural life.
In Myanmar, when it comes to cooking, travel is the basic foodstuff. Myanmar's most favourite sport includes various combat games and Chinlone-a hocky bag-like sport in which you have to work together to keep a wicker bal in the sky without using your hand.
