Topic: Myanmar’s political and economic awakening
What are the political and economic changes underway and the current realities on the ground in Myanmar? Following Myanmar’s recent by-elections, Aung San Suu Kyi will lead the largest opposition group in the Lower House, though with less than 10% of the total seats. What is behind the changes, the role of sanctions and Myanmar’s future position in the region?
