Selling the Silk Road Spirit: China’s Belt and Road Initiative in Myanmar

As the year 2019 comes to a close, the struggle over rights to land in Myanmar has reached a new turning point. On December 18-19, 2019, the government will hold a workshop to plan the official process for making a new National Land Law.

The new law will eventually clarify the direction the government will take the country in not only in terms of rights to land. The new land law will also clarify the terms of “national development” and which development trajectory will be taken, and in so doing, will also clarify who will have to bear the costs of that choice.
