Interview With Mr.GengYi


“Mr Geng Yi, let’s begin our interview by discussing the report of Daw Aung San Suu Kyi that led to the creation of the IC (Investigation Commission). According to the IC report's conclusion, the IC has determined that everything is above board with the details of the Project and that it will in fact benefit the Republic of the Union of Myanmar, as well as profit your company, the Project’s foreign investor. However, the most profound and perhaps only deficiency that the report uncovered was a lack of mutual transparency.

Before the most recent adjustments to the contract, the IC determined that there was little to no transparency on what the investors are doing, as well as on what the joint-venture MEHL (Myanma Economic Holding Ltd.) is doing. People were not aware of the internal activities, and the public in general was not included in any open dialogue. A most relevant question the people would like to have answered is this; how will you prepare and start to work to run your Project to attend to this transparency situation?”
