Myanmar opens market to foreign investors

Locals fear those who made money under military dictatorship may exploit new business climate for more profit.

    India is hosting a summit of South East Asian countries in an attempt to improve trade with the region, and Myanmar seems to be top of their agenda.

    During the summit, officials are expected to focus on building stronger economic ties with Myanmar.

    As Myanmar opens up to foreign investors, it is changing the lives of many of its citizens.
