President Thein Sein is attending the 9th China-Asean Expo and the China-Asean Investment Summit. The 9th Expo in Nanning aims to promote economic cooperation between China and ASEAN. Burma was named the trade fair’s “Country of Honor” this year and the President spoke at the opening ceremony on behalf of the ASEAN-member states to launch the event, which runs from September 21 to 25.
Relation between China and Burma (Myanmar) has become a little strained recently as Burma moves closer to the US. However, according to Reuters News, during a meeting on the sidelines of a trade fair in southern China, Thein Sein said Beijing should not worry.
