Outgoing British ambassador to Myanmar Mr Andrew Patrick talks about his five years in Myanmar, including the 2015 election, the current state of press freedom and what the government needs to do to begin addressing the crisis in Rakhine State.
Mr Sudhir Shetty saw a transformed Myanmar when he returned to Yangon last month to speak at a World Bank event as its chief economist for East Asia and the Pacific. In an earlier role, 20 years ago, Shetty was the World Bank’s senior country economist for Myanmar. He spoke to Frontier’s Kyaw Phone Kyaw.
