Recent decades have seen notable gains in women’s political power, exemplified by the rise of such prominent female leaders as Cory Aquino, Gloria Macapagal-arroyo, Aung San Suu Kyi and Megawati Soekarnoputri. There is a prevailing perception that Southeast Asian women –especially those highly educated or from powerful families – can do well politically or even better than their male counterparts. But has the increasing number of female leaders in Southeast Asia’s local governments been accompanied by women’s greater control over local political processes ...

By Mark Inkey Asian Correspondent January 24, 2014 The British Army provided training to Burmese armed forces personnel this month despite the Southeast Asian nation’s refusal to sign the UN Preventing Sexual Violence Initiative (PSVI) and fresh reports of rape of ethnic women by Burmese soldiers. British Foreign Secretary William Hague launched the PSVI initiative at the UN General Assembly on September 24. At the end of the conference Mr Hague proudly announced that that 115 countries had signed up to the PSVI. (As of October 2013, 134 countries had signed up.) Signatories included countries with appalling records of sexual violence, including the Democratic Republic of Congo and Sierra Leone. Burma, however, refused to sign up. When President Thein Sein visited Britain last July the British Government offered to pay for the British Army to train 30 senior Burmese army officers, a deal that was also endorsed by Burmese opposition leader and democracy icon Aung San Suu Kyi. The deal was as good as unco ...
Myanmar finally takes a seat at its own oil & gas feast: Reuters In a few months, impoverished Myanmar plans to start pumping roughly $45 million worth of oil and gas a day from the Bay of Bengal to China by pipeline. The vital fuel for China's growing economy will bypass the Malacca Straits and U.S. ally Singapore. It will mostly also bypass Myanmar. Though rich in natural resources, Myanmar has little capacity to use them for its own development. For decades, its leaders valued gas for the hard currency it could earn rather than the economic development it could fuel. Today, only one in four of Myanmar's citizens have electricity. Now, two years after sweeping aside six decades of self-imposed isolation in favor of democratic reforms, Myanmar's leaders face pressure to deliver tangible results, to appease voters ahead of 2015 elections and to quell sectarian unrest. "We're now entering the third year of the reforms," said opposition leader and Nobel price laureate Aung San Suu Kyi, who used her appearan ...
Myanmar's pro-democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi wants to be the president of Southeast Asian country.
What North Korea could learn from Myanmar? (CNN) -- One question that policymakers might have overlooked in trying to come up with a long-term strategy toward North Korea is this: Could the Hermit Kingdom be the next Myanmar? Myanmar, widely known by its former name of Burma, was once a pariah, but it has surprised almost everyone by becoming a Western investor's dream. While there are significant differences between Myanmar and North Korea, there are similarities that prompt the same Southeast Asian investors who correctly predicted Myanmar's turnaround to be optimistic about North Korea's future. Until recently, Myanmar's only ally was China. For over a decade, the international community placed sanctions on Myanmar for its human rights violations, including the house arrest of the prominent activist Aung San Suu Kyi. But the junta drastically changed direction and endorsed a U.S. road map for reform -- a process that led to the U.S. lifting its export ban in September. Today, an emancipated Suu Kyi is ...
What a difference a year makes. A functioning ATM at Yangon International Airport; a reporter from Myanmar International Television on prime time; a brand new KIA showroom sparkling with chrome and glass; Italian gelato counters serving raspberry and lime sorbet alongside a sumptuous buffet of Burmese cuisine. On Yangon’s streets, hundreds of new Toyota Land Cruisers and Mitsubishi Pajeros have emerged as clear favorites – even an occasional Porsche sweeps past. These material symbols of Myanmar’s recent transformation indicate rapid progress, but also pose reasons for concern. Growth this year is projected at 6 percent, keeping pace with some of Myanmar’s Southeast Asian neighbors, and possibly overtaking others. While these are welcome changes, runaway economic development produces its own dilemmas: destruction of the environment, displacement of communities, erosion of cultural bonds as creeping consumerism replaces fellowship and camaraderie. Call it Myanmar’s Catch 22. Eleven months ago whe ...
Thursday, 14 February 2013 13:45 Victoria Bruce / MZINE+   The distant South Pacific island nation of New Zealand is making its mark on Myanmar soil and looking to transfer its agricultural prowess in milk production and dairy manufacturing to farmers in the Southeast Asian country.   New Zealand’s Prime Minister John Key recently toured Myanmar’s major cities of Yangon and Naypyitaw and pledged NZ $6 million in development funding for a model dairy farm, the first of its kind in Myanmar.   Mr Key, the first ever New Zealand prime minister to visit Myanmar, met with high-ranking officials including President Thein Sein and opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi during his three day visit in November 2012.   His entourage included New Zealand’s Ambassador to Myanmar, Thailand, Laos and Cambodia, Tony Lynch and Trade Commissioner Karen Campbell.   M-ZINE+ Senior Reporter Victoria Bruce sat down with Ambassador Lynch and Ms Campbell in their Bangkok headquarters to discuss the commercial significance ...
YANGON (Reuters) - It won't be mistaken for a Nixon-goes-to-China kind of moment. But President Barack Obama's visit to Myanmar on Monday sometimes felt like a return to an earlier era of presidential diplomacy - and his aides were determined to make sure that no one missed its historic significance. The trip was carefully choreographed to highlight what the White House sees as a first-term foreign policy success for a newly re-elected president whose record on the world stage shows few triumphs so far. There was the cautious first meeting with reformist President Thein Sein to keep him on track, landmark talks with opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi and a speech to the Burmese people at a university steeped in the country's turbulent political history. But there were also a few unscripted parts that underscored how strange it was for Obama to be feted by cheering crowds lining the streets of Yangon little more than a year after ordering aides to explore rapprochement with the long-shunned Southeast Asian ...
Obama to meet Suu Kyi, Myanmar president in Yangon. WASHINGTON: Barack Obama will meet Myanmar democracy icon Aung San Suu Kyi and President Thein Sein on a historic first visit to the country by a sitting US president designed to boost a political reform drive. The White House said on Thursday that Obama would also visit Thailand and attend the East Asia summit in Cambodia on the November 17-20 trip, which will mark his return to the world stage following his re-election. During a few hours in Myanmar, Obama will deepen his administration's support for the startling reform process launched by Thein Sein that has seen Suu Kyi, who was under house arrest for years, become a member of parliament. The president is also expected to make a speech to civil society groups and may make a stop at a cultural site in Yangon. In Thailand, a US treaty ally, Obama will meet Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra and mark 180 years of diplomatic relations with the Southeast Asian kingdom, a key regional military ally. The p ...
