The article presents economic and political conditions of Myanmar. Both the government and the opposition will want to give the constitution-drafting process, scheduled to start in May 2004, a chance. Whether it succeeds in breaking the political deadlock depends on the willingness of both sides to compromise. While the economy is suffering from the absence of Western aid and low levels of investment, it is not completely starved of external resources. In March a Chinese government-backed business delegation visited Myanmar, leading to the signing of over 20 agreements in the area of infrastructure and trade, many of which were backed by aid.
