Article: "Governing in prose"
> In 2015, Myanmar’s ruling military junta stepped down and relinquished power to the NLD (National League for Democracy) led by Aung San Suu Kyi. The United States lifted sanctions as a result. Economic growth in Myanmar has been increasing at a rate of 6% a year (2016). The capital Yangon (old: Rangoon) is the center of that growth, accounting for 25% of GDP and 50% of all electricity usage. Rural Myanmar is still primitive and the military is still fighting ethnic rebels (the Rohingya) in the hinterlands. A complaint on the NLD - they don’t consult or communicate with the business sector.
