Myanmar: Ethnic Cleansing and Extra-Crispy Chicken

In May, a US human rights organization issued a startling report about the early warning signs of genocide in Myanmar, where the government continues its campaign against the Rohingya minority. It seems that the international business community has been too busy unpacking their bags to take notice. The first American fast food chain, KFC, has now entered the market. Mobile services are likely to improve as Digicel Group Ltd. has obtained $60 million in Islamic financing to expand its cellular operations in the country.  The country’s offshore oil reserves will finally soon be tapped as the government awarded concessions to several companies in return for over $300 million in investment.
