The A. pays attention to the increasingly visible presence of Chinese interest in Burma. It states that China within a few years has managed to establish control over a major part of its natural and energy resources critical to its development. China became a top trading partner, far surpassing Thailand and India. At the strategic level, China intends to acquire access to the Indian Ocean. This strategy is dependent on heavy migration of Chinese, especially to the North and the city of Mandalay. The historical capital has received several successive waves of Chinese migrants, who eventually “colonized” the center and transformed centrally located neighborhood districts. The phenomenon apparently met with little resistance, given the open collusion between the Burmese military and Chinese migrants. The creation of the 24th Chinese province” is now on its way in Burma. - (GL)
