Myanmar and Mongolia, May 30. 2013

Many well-wishers welcomed Myanmar opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi at the Yangon International Airport on May 7 as she arrived back from Mongolia.

"As her arrival time was very late at night, I was worried that there wouldn't be many well-wishers. I wanted many people to welcome her. Now, a lot of people came to welcome her. I believe that whenever she went on foreign trips, she did beneficial things for the country," said Khin Saw Mu, vice chairperson of National League for Democracy branch office.

The Nobel Prize winner was in Mongolia for a week to participate in the 7th Ministerial Conference of Community of Democracies at the invitation of Mongolian President Elbegdorj Tsakhia.

She delivered a speech at the summit and received an award for her lifetime struggle to bring democracy in Myanmar.

She also met with President Elbegdorj at the Government House in UB and gave a joint lecture with him.

Just like Investment Agreement between Rio Tinto and Mongolian Government has opened the door for Mongolia to access to international investments in 2009, the visit of Mrs. Clinton and President Obama in 2011/2012 marked the significant event for the start of “Myanmar Boom”.Both Mongolia and Myanmar have become “Symbol” of the Frontier Markets in the last few years.

In this report, we have compared the two countries and provided implications for investors.
