    I guess it has to be.
    But make no mistake , the government of Burma is still one of the most repressive in the world , and is now actively directing even greater persecution of minorities , both Hill Tribe and Rohinga.
    The rest of the world , by supporting that often murderous regime in a supposed effort to bring about a peaceful democracy is being hood winked ...
    Democracy is decades away .

    The minority ethnic parties (mainly hilltribes) have won 100 seats so they have some representation.

    Myanmar

    For China, Burma's massive coast line is the equivalent of the western world's oil and interest in the Middle East. Thus, China and the West will make a horrible mess of it over the next few decades.

    Interesting facts:

    *Burma has produced large amounts of oil since 1875

    *The biggest benefactors of Burmese Oil production today are Thailand & China.

    *The Burmese oil interests were historically controlled by 24 wealthy Burmese families the "Twinyazo".

    *ASSK's father Aung San founded the Burmese communist party.
    He also founded the modern Burmese military. He was assassinated soon after.

    *Ne Win was a socialist leader in Burma who nationalised the country's oil industry in 1963 There was a military coup soon after. He was a military leader of Burma for 28 years.

    Just as long as Thailand don't follow... requiring permission to leave home for more than 24hrs

    Myanmar draft foreigner laws worry expats
    27 Jan 2017


    YANGON - Two draft laws concerning foreigners are sending Shockwaves through the expat community and could undermine the government’s stated priorities in attracting responsible foreign investment and promoting a human rights agenda, lawyers and business experts say.

    Both the draft Law Concerning Foreigners and the Foreign Worker Law are pegged as priorities for the next Pyidaungsu Hluttaw session which opens on Jan 30.

    In their current iteration, the laws would require foreigners who live and work in Myanmar to obtain a slew of documentation and undergo a medical examination within seven days of arriving in the country, and would also place restrictions on travelling or relocating.

    According to a recently published draft, the Law Concerning Foreigners requires non-citizens who are above the age of 10 and who are planning on residing in the country for more than 90 days to obtain a foreigner registration certificate (FRC), and carry it at all times. While the stipulation is technically already on the books, the provision is rarely enforced.

    Under the draft, failing to apply for the certificate could see the offender behind bars for up to five years.

    The clause gaining the most attention, however, concerns internal travel. In order for the FRC holder to take a trip within Myanmar of more than 24 hours, the prior approval of a “registrar” –- defined as someone who heads a township immigration, manpower office or higher -– needs to be sought. Failure to obtain permission could result in a maximum one year prison sentence.
