China’s influence on Myanmar


China has been the major backers of the Military junta in Myanmar.

China has disregarded the global concerns about the human rights violation by the junta and has helped the junta to stay in Myanmar’s center of power.

China has always felt it should keep firm control over this Southeast Asian nation for China’s geopolitical — particularly economic — interests.

Over the years, China has poured-in billions of dollars worth of investment in Myanmar. In particular, China has successfully kept considerable grip in matters related to the Myanmar’s natural resources and has invested heavily in this area.
