he new government was never formed. Military leader General Ne Win led a coup d’etat which ousted the democratically elected government in 1962, and subsequently installed himself as leader. General Ne Win dominated the government from 1962 to 1988, first as military ruler, then as self-appointed president, and later as political kingpin. Pro-democracy demonstrations in 1988 were violently crushed, with general Saw Maung taking over in a coup and installing the State Law and Order Restoration Council (SLORC) to rule the country, now renamed Myanmar.

Generalities

Like most of Southeast Asia’s countries, Myanmar’s people and history is a glorious mishmash of settlers and invaders from all fronts. The Mon and the Pyu are thought to have come from India, while the now dominant Bamar (Burmese) migrated through Tibet and, by 849, had founded a powerful kingdom centred on Bagan. For the next millennium, the Burmese empire grew through conquests of Thailand (Ayutthaya) and India (Manipur), and shrank under attacks from China and internal rebellions.

Formalities

Myanmar has revised some fishery export formalities, authorizing the country’s Fisheries Federation to directly handle the issuance of Country of Origin Certificate for fishery exports, a local weekly reported Monday.

The new measure, which is aimed at facilitating exporters and boosting fishery exports, will take effect from Sept. 26, the Myanmar Times quoted the federation sources as saying.

Due to the strict regime currently governing Myanmar, getting a Myanmar visa is slightly more involved than obtaining visas for other countries in Southeast Asia.

Despite the challenges of dealing with a military bureaucracy, Myanmar can be an exciting and beautiful place to visit. The Burmese people are more than welcoming and want the world to experience their beautiful country.

Work

Official opportunities to volunteer are greatly limited. A list of NGOs that may have volunteering opportunities can be found on although mostly their postings are for specific experienced workers (often in medicine). Don’t let this sway you. Everyone in Myanmar wants to learn English, and few can afford to. Ask in towns or villages to sit in at an English class.

One or two smaller operations have wrangled past the government- and sanction-inspired red tape and set up low-key projects to improve lives. The following two are able to accept both skilled and unskilled volunteers, but give them as much advance notice as possible.

Health care

The general state of health care in Burma is poor. The military government spends anywhere from 0.5% to 3% of the country’s GDP on health care, consistently ranking among the lowest in the world.[1][2] Although health care is nominally free, in reality, patients have to pay for medicine and treatment, even in public clinics and hospitals. Public hospitals lack many of the basic facilities and equipment.

Transports

Myanmar sits at the crossroads of Asia’s great civilisations of India and China, and looks out onto the vast Indian Ocean next to Thailand. One of South East Asia’s largest and most diverse countries, Myanmar stretches from the sparkling islands of the Andaman Sea in the south right up into the Eastern Himalayan mountain range. Much of the mountainous areas of Myanmar near the borders are closed, due to conflicts with minority groups or sometimes due to dodgy infrastructure. Remember that situations can change, with routes opening (or closing); always check before you start planning.

Removal

KUALA LUMPUR (Reuters) – Southeast Asian lawmakers want Myanmar expelled from the ASEAN regional grouping unless it frees democracy icon Aung San Suu Kyi and other political prisoners within a year, Malaysia’s state media said on Saturday.

ASEAN was making a great error by not forcing Myanmar’s government to fulfill its promises of democratic reforms, news agency Bernama quoted Zaid Ibrahim, a Malaysian MP and head of the ASEAN lawmakers’ group, as saying.

Myanmar said on Saturday it had extended the house arrest of Nobel peace laureate Suu Kyi by another six months. She has already spent about 10 of the last 15 years either in prison or under house arrest.
