The investment logic for sustainability

Sustainability is pretty clearly one of the world's most important goals; but what groups can really make environmental progress in leaps and bounds? Chris McKnett makes the case that it's large institutional investors. He shows how strong financial data isn't enough, and reveals why investors need to look at a company's environmental, social and governance structures, too.

Myanmar: After a Turbulent Past, A Brighter Future?

Myanmar: After a Turbulent Past, A Brighter Future? | Myanmar SME | Scoop.it
After half a century, Myanmar (formerly known as Burma) seems to be emerging from its isolation. Myanmar should be a prized member of the Asian and international communities. It is a nation of 60 million inhabitants with a distinct and rich culture, and abundant natural resources. It is strategically located at the juncture between East and South Asia, sharing borders with China, India, Laos, Bangladesh and Thailand, and possesses a very long coastline along the Bay of Bengal.

ASEAN, China to set ground rules on sea issues in January | Myanmar SME | Scoop.it

THE ASSOCIATION of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) will kick-off talks with China on drafting a binding document governing activities in South China Sea this January, a ranking government official told a legislator on Monday.


Chinese officials have earlier rejected multilateral negotiations on the issue, saying that they would only agree discussing bilaterally with four Southeast Asian nations which have overlapping claims in the resource rich area -- Brunei, Malaysia, the Philippines and Vietnam.The Southeast Asian claimants as well as the United States and Japan want a multilateral approach to resolving the dispute.


Meanwhile, ASEAN members Myanmar and Cambodia have already expressed disagreement with the multilateral approach.

Myanmar author explores new literary freedom

Myanmar author explores new literary freedom | Myanmar SME | Scoop.it

“As Myanmar's censors loosen their grip, one of the country's most acclaimed authors plans to republish her novel about two gay lovers, restoring sex-laced passages once deemed too risque for readers.

 

Chunks of paragraphs from Nu Nu Yi's 1994 novel "Smile as they bow" were purged by the all-powerful censorship office -- seen as an Orwellian-style arbiter of all that is fit for publication.

 

For decades they vetted every article, book manuscript, photograph and illustration before publication, eliminating anything considered inflammatory or damaging to the nation's military dictators.

 

But the quasi-civilian government that took office last year has effectively abolished direct censorship, a totemic indicator of the reforms sweeping Myanmar as it emerges from the shadows of outright military rule.

 

No one is cheering that more than Nu Nu Yi, who in 2007 became the first living Burmese to be nominated for the Man Asian Literary Prize.”

This announced plan of Thailand's is in addition to the rest of ASEAN's plan to link up the mainland of the Greater Mekong Sub-Region.  The planned routes to Nong Khai on the Laos/Thai border is extremely important to opening up the center of the region.  There is a lot of activity in that area of the world to the south and west of Vietienne, the Laotian capital, which will have a major rail spur running to Hanoi in the north of Vietnam.


The line connecting Hat Yai to Bangkok will open up transport between Bangkok and Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia as well as Singpore while feeding goods from the newly-refunded port project at Dawei, Myanmar.  If that project fails to come to fruitition (a $50 billion port in the middle of nowhere) Thailand is prepared to go with a different overland route at the thinnest part of the peninsula to cut ocean travel around Malaysia and the Malaccan Straits down significantly.
