Burma – Burma was closed to businesses until 2011. Now, there are 109 western companies companies currently working in and with Burma. 27 of those companies are USA companies. Those companies range from Gap to General Electric. USA is not conducting an evacuation from Burma, but Americans and companies in the country have been advised to take the “upmost caution.” USA has said that it is hoping for peace to come and although disappointed with the events are hoping for no more bloodshed.
Some companies in Burma include Hilton hotels, Gap., KFC (Yum! brands), Microsoft and others.
It is uncertain whether international funds will continue to flow in the country with the current situation. More details are to come.
