China tops Thailand as biggest investor in Myanmar

YANGON, Myanmar (AP) — China, already Myanmar's closest diplomatic ally, is now also the country's largest foreign investor, a report said Monday.

The Myanmar-language Weekly Eleven says that China poured more than $3 billion into the country from November last year through January this year, bringing its cumulative investment since 1988 to $9.6 billion, compared to Thailand's $9.56 billion.

A junta that took power in 1988 after violently quashing pro-democracy demonstrations opened up the country to foreign investment after more than two decades of economic isolation. Parliamentary rule was nominally restored last month.

Thailand had been the largest investor for the past seven years, mostly in the energy sector. Hong Kong is the third biggest investor, with $5.9 billion.

Monday's news report, citing an unnamed official from the Union of Myanmar Chamber of Commerce and Industry, said China's major new investments were in hydropower projects.

Several of its large-scale hydropower projects have been criticized for allegedly uprooting thousands of people from their homes and harming the environment, hurting people's ability to make a living.

Another major Chinese investment is the Shwe natural gas project in Myanmar's western Rakhine State, which involves China importing gas from offshore Myanmar wells and oil from tankers from the Middle East through a 750-mile (1,200 kilometer) oil and gas pipeline.

There have been no major new Western investments in recent years because of tough economic sanctions imposed by the United States and Washington to pressure the military government to restore democracy and improve its human rights record.

‘Warm words’ not enough: McCain
Quote:


ANY improvement in relations between Myanmar and the United States must be built on “concrete steps” towards democratic reform, US Senator John McCain reiterated at the conclusion of the three-day visit last week.

Speaking at a press conference in Yangon on June 3, Senator McCain said opportunities existed to create a better relationship, which he believed was the desire of both sides.

“It was clear from my meetings in Nay Pyi Taw that the new government wants a better relationship with the United States, and I was equally clear that this is an aspiration that I and my government share,” Senator McCain said in a statement.

Myanmar bans pigs from Yangon as infection spreads
Quote:
Nay Pyi Taw, June 7 (IANS) Authorities in Myanmar are making an endeavour to prevent a pigs related blue ear disease from spreading to various regions of the country.

For this, the authorities have banned pigs bred in Bago region from entering Yangon region for sale as part of its preventive measures, Xinhua reported.

Blue ear disease, known as Porcine Reproductive and Respiratory Syndrome (PRRS) disease, has been infecting pigs from Paungde township and spreading the disease to other areas in Bago region, the Weekly Eleven said Monday.

Bago is located in the southern central part of the country while Yangoon lies in the heart of lower Myanmar. Both are administrative regions of the country.

Bago stands at third place in the blue ear disease incidence after the second largest city of Mandalay in March and the new capital of Nay Pyi Taw in April.
