Myanmar’s Suu Kyi Says Reforms Depend on Military Commitment

June 1 (Bloomberg) -- Myanmar opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi said the sustainability of political reforms in the country will depend on the commitment of the miltary and the nation.

Suu Kyi, speaking at the World Economic Forum on East Asia in Bangkok on her first trip abroad in 24 years, also said her country needs to improve basic education to bolster economic development and ensure the reform process becomes irreversible.

Suu Kyi said investment in Myanmar should not create more corruption and “greater privilege for the already privileged.” Instead, investment should focus on job-creation, and informal training for Myanmar’s workforce.
