Just like with Canada's gold rush, many foreign companies would like to rush into Burma to exploit the country's natural resources.
Also, people of Burma think that when western investors come to Burma, they are better than Asian investors. Asian investors—from China, Taiwan, Malaysia, Singapore—don't care about labour rights. They don't care the ethnic issues. They don't care about Burma's environmental impacts.
But if we don't set any rules for our foreign investors, western investors, they will do it the same way. When they set their foot in the country they want to make a profit. I don't think they will respect labour rights, environmental impacts, the social welfare of the people. We want those companies to be socially responsible, environmentally responsible, and they have to consider the welfare of, the benefits to, the people of Burma. These are the major points.
That's why, for whoever goes to Burma, we would like to set the binding principles for those companies to follow accordingly.
