ABSTRACT
The article provides various information related to Myanmar government and its economic condition. In June four small bombs exploded in Yangon over two days. No one has claimed responsibility for the attacks, but the government is pointing fingers at dissident groups based overseas. While opposition to the government clearly exists both inside and outside the country, control by the security forces is extensive making it difficult for groups seeking to destabilise the government to operate. While the economy is suffering from the absence of Western aid and low levels of investment, it is not completely starved of external resources. China continues to be a major source of funds, and new agreements were signed during a visit by Myanmar's prime minister in July.
