Myanmar hosts World Economic Forum

Forum concentrating on East Asia highlights how quickly ex-military government is being accepted by West.

Myanmar is hosting the annual World Economic Forum on East Asia from May 5 to 7, in the country’s new political capital, Naypyidaw.

The event highlights how in such a short time, the former military government has been accepted by the West, after implementing a number of political reforms.

But some critics say foreign governments and companies are in too much of a rush to do business with the new leadership, despite its existing social and sectarian problems.
