Don`t ignore Myanmar politics, Suu Kyi tells EU investors

Myanmar`s Aung San Suu Kyi on Thursday told a European Union business forum that investors should not ignore the country`s political challenges as it heads towards crucial 2015 elections.



Yangon: Myanmar opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi on Thursday told a European Union business forum that investors should not ignore the country`s political challenges as it heads towards crucial 2015 elections.
The veteran activist said constitutional amendment was imperative for the economic development of the nation, seen as a key regional developing market as it opens after decades of military rule.

"Anybody that encourages business or investment or any other activity in Burma while at the same time totally ignoring the need to amend the constitution is not being pragmatic," she said, using the country`s former name.

Suu Kyi also rejected suggestions that her party would slow economic progress if it came to power.

She was speaking at a forum on supporting Myanmar`s transition that was hosted by EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton.
