ABSTRACT
The article presents the analysis of the Business Monitor International (BMI) Ltd. on the political developments in Myanmar in 2009. It states that the fighting among the army troops and ethnic Chinese rebels in August has breached the terms of the 1989 ceasefire agreement granting the rebel Myanmar National Democratic Alliance Army (MDAA) far-reaching autonomy in the area. It notes that the possible motive is an attempt to compel ethnic rebels to participate in the 2010 parliamentary elections.
