World Bank urges land, labour reform in Burma

The World Bank has called for reforms in the sectors of land and skilled workers, as well as the upgrade of electricity, as prime motivators in attracting investment and financial aid to Burma. The World Bank reportedly conducted field trips to businesses in Rangoon, Mandalay, Monywa, Taunggyi and Pegu last summer and held meetings with more than 1,000 businesspeople as part of its survey.
