What are the political and economic changes underway and the current realities on the ground in Myanmar?  Following Myanmar’s recent by-elections, Aung San Suu Kyi will lead the largest opposition group in the Lower House, though with less than 10% of the total seats.  What is behind the changes, the role of sanctions and Myanmar’s future position in the region?

Hans Vriens has lived and worked in Asia since 1990, during which time he has been counsel to clients on many of the most sensitive issues in Asia. His firm, Vriens & Partners just published an in-depth report on the political economy of Myanmar.
