Name of Oil Companies in Burma

Name of Oil Companies in Burma

Burma is rich in natural resources, particularly natural gas and oil. Yet instead of using these resources for the country’s sustainable development through industry and job growth, military leaders have been exporting them for over a decade. This has generated huge revenue flows, but a lack of transparency and mismanagement of these revenues has left Burma with some of the worse development indicators in the world, creating a Resource Curse.
