Suu Kyi to Attend Energy Conference
31 May 2013
Burmese opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi will attend an oil and natural gas summit next month, event organizers said. “Due to the very high level of international interest in Myanmar at the moment we are delighted to hear that Aung San Suu Kyi has decided to attend the Myanmar Oil and Gas Summit,” Neil McKenzie, manager at event organizer Oliver Kinross, said in a statement. The event comes amid growing scrutiny of Burma’s energy sector, which was deemed the world’s least transparent in a recent report by Revenue Watch Institute.
