Such as this presentation? Burma's latitude is 21° north and 95° west of India and China, and has an extensive southern frontier with Thailand. Bangladesh and Laos share relatively small boundaries with Myanmar, Myanmar is formed with a pan-handle similar to Oklahoma, which extends along the west side of Thailand.
Burma lies just southwards of the Tibetan plateau, westwards of the Indochina Peninsula and northwards of the Malay Peninsula, the main city of Myanmar is Yangon, also known as Rangoon. Myanmar's waters have several waters that surround the southwest shore. Bengal Bay lies on the southwest coastline, the Gulf of Martaban just south of Yangon, Myanmar's capitol, and the Andaman Sea on the westside of the Pan Handle.
Burma, a resource-rich nation, is suffering from omnipresent state control, inefficient economic policy and widespread poor. In the early 1990' s, the Burma regime took economic liberalisation following decade-long failures on Burma's'road to socialism', but these efforts were halted and some of the liberalisation efforts were lifted. Economies are suffering from severe macro-economic disparities - which include overvaluation of Burma's Khat by a number of governmental currencies and a biased interest rate regime.
The US responded to the May 2003 assault by the Burma authorities on AUNG SAN SUU KYI and her convoi by imposing new financial penalties on Burma, such as a prohibition on Burma's import of goods and the US's prohibition of financial service-providers. Obviously, the stats are inexact. The external imbalances in the external imbalances are greatly understated due to the scale of the illegal markets and informal frontier trading, often considered to be as large as the formal one.
Burma's trading with Thailand, China and India is increasing. Although the Myanmar authorities maintain good commercial ties with their neighbours, a better climate for investments and businesses and an enhanced policy environment have emerged to encourage external investments, export and tourist activities.
