South Korea's Relations with Myanmar | February 16, 2017

See video
Description: 
Since the implementation of democratic reforms in 2011, Myanmar has attracted the attention of countries around the world seeking to capitalize on its gradual economic opening, including South Korea. South Korea has doubled its development assistance, trade, and investment in the Southeast Asian country in less than five years, yet it still lags behind other major regional powers in these categories. While South Korea may not necessarily be able to overtake its larger competitors, it is uniquely positioned to leverage its economic standing to develop a broader and more strategic relationship with Myanmar. Against the backdrop of continuing regional change such a relationship could not be more timely.
