World Bank Predicts 6.3 Percent Growth for Burma

The World Bank said on Wednesday that it expects Burma’s economy to grow by 6.3 percent in 2013, after achieving 5.5 percent growth in the current fiscal year. However, the country remains one of the poorest in Asia, with more than 26 percent of the population living in poverty, the bank said in its annual year-end East Asia and Pacific Economic Update. This is the first time the World Bank has included Burma in the report. The bank and other international lenders, including the Asian Development Bank, returned to Burma this year after shunning the country for more than two decades.

  1. People should seriously start reading “Confessions of an Economic Hitman” of John Perkins. Before too late.

     There is no F data to start with. How the H      they know or can predict what the F the great liberating economy is going to be?? One’s brain must be more than rotten to fall for those filthy crap. Economy is when the workers in Burma can eat TWO meals a day with no worry and without breaking their bones.When one cannot earn enough for ONE meal a day, and things are getting worse so that crime is the only food ticket, these craps are simply for justification of the rape and pillage of the land.,facilitated by the “Elites” who will prosper truly with Fleet Jaguars and loyal agent Aung San Suu Kyi.
