2013-02-15 Business opportunities in Myanmar

Following the introduction of reform initiatives by the Burmese government over the last 12-18 months, investors and entrepreneurs are looking for business opportunities  in a country rich in resources and short on infrastructure.

It seems only a short while ago that  Myanmar (also known in the West by its colonial name "Burma") was one of the most notorious pariah states in the world alongside the still-unreformed North Korea.

But 18 months is not just a long time in global politics, it is an eternity!

Yet, in this relatively short period, the Myanmar government has introduced a swathe of economic and political reforms, has released from jail and house arrest many of their political opponents, most important of whom is Aung San Suu Kyi and has entertained most of the the world's top leaders including President Obama, the European European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso and the leaders of many Western as well as regional countries.

So why has Myanmar become the country, that the world's  politicians love to say nice things about?
