Further case studies
Myanmar's wealthy - but largely uncharted - minerals have, among other things, brought mines to the top of the debate on new overseas investments. However, opaqueness in the regulative context, policy and societal questions and the practices of the cumbersome Production Sharing Contract (PSC) demands have slowed down economic expansion in the coal and steel industry; until recently, it was only Chinese, Thai, Hong Kong and Vietnam that had the vulnerability to take risks.
Some of the most mineral-rich areas of the nation will find that the mine risks of conflicts have hindered the exploration of large quantities of mines. As Myanmar has made progress towards a nationwide ceasefire deal and announced a proposed nationwide ceasefire deal in the second half of 2015, figures gathered by the US Campaign for Burma, an American NGO, show that there are frequent cases of violent conflicts in the states of Kachin and Kayin along the Thai and China frontiers.
