Myanmar’s economy yet to see real progress – Suu Kyi

Opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi has told media that the Myanmar has yet to see real economic progress as most people’s living conditions have not improved.

Suu Kyi, chairperson of the National League for Democracy, made the critical remark during a meeting with the media in Nay Pyi Taw on Tuesday.

“Myanmar’s economic situation is not good at present. Briefly speaking, there is no real progress. We can say this judging by the people’s living conditions. Their living standards have not improved yet,” said the opposition leader.

She also blamed little investment in the country on the lack of rule of law and basic infrastructure. Many business people complain that government ministries are slow and inefficient to deal with. Suu Kyi added that national projects should be implemented without heavily depending on foreign investment.

“Set aside what the experts have said. We can know about this when we talk to the public. It is common knowledge that foreign investment does not improve as much as expected. Shall we wait for investment? Meanwhile, can’t we do what we should do for our own people?” added Suu Kyi.
