BUSINESS - Staff shortage setback for Burma Stock Exchange

The Ministry of Finance is struggling to recruit suitable staff for the soon to be launched Burmese stock exchange, Kyoto News has reported, citing an unwillingness for public sector employees to give up entitlements to join a private concern. The Burmese government had intended to create a securities and exchange commission in 2014 in the lead up to next year’s stock exchange opening, however that plan has been derailed by the lack of suitable personnel.
