Burma's Open Road

A fascinating insight into how Burma's future may be affected if its government takes the major decision to allow the building of a road through its lands to create a direct link between China and India. Burma's geographical standing between China and India, two of the world's fastest growing economics, provides a corridor of trade that is too financially important to ignore with potential trade worth billions of dollars crossing its borders annually. The arguments for and against are simple: modernisation vs. preservation.
