Myanmar’s Perspective of "One Belt, One Road"
- Myanmar’s reforms during the five-year term of President U Thein Sein have indicated her reintegration into the international community. Myanmar’s future directions also opened new opportunities for her to cooperate with its regional neighbors. Her active participation can be seen in regional organiza-tions such as ASEAN, BIMSTEC, ACMECS, and GMS. Myanmar plays a unique role in these groups as the geo-strategic link between the South Asia, Southeast Asia and Myanmar and will bridge these important regions for the prosperity of the region. Myanmar entered these regions with the aim to gain economic benefits from information exchanges, technical know-how, modern communication system, prevention of transnational crime and elimination of drug trafficking, environmental protection, solutions for climate change issues, and disaster management. It also can have better friendship and closer contacts with regional countries by making people-to-people contacts and tourism promotion. Furthermore, Myanmar can achieve positive impacts from further collaboration in research and development, human resource development, technology transfer and private sector participation among member countries.
