Last month, Senegalese national Mr Abdoulaye Seck completed his stint as World Bank’s Myanmar country manager after nearly three years in the role. Before taking over as the organisation’s country manager in Afghanistan, he spoke to Frontier’s Oliver Slow about the World Bank’s priorities in Myanmar, advice for his successors and some personal reflections from his time in the country.
On June 26, the government commemorated the International Day Against Drug Abuse by burning illicit drugs with a street value of more than US$200 million at a lavish ceremony in Yangon.

Frontier’s Oliver Slow spoke to UNODC regional representative Mr Jeremy Douglas about the extent of illicit drug use in Myanmar, measures being taken to improve treatment for users and the agency’s programmes aimed at combatting transnational crime.
