ABSTRACT
This article presents information on country risk to investments in Burma. The Burmese ruling military junta, or State Peace and Development Council, is currently holding discussions with the last remaining rebel group in the country, the Karen National Union. In a measure which should provide a boost to the Myanmar economy, the Japanese government has announced it will resume aid donations to the country. Foreign companies remain reluctant to invest in Myanmar because of the deteriorating human rights situation in the country.
