GE was the first U.S. company authorized to operate in Myanmar...The requirements…closely follow the precepts established by the UN Guiding Principles…What if a state widely fails to shoulder this obligation, yet a business entity…seeks to do business in that country?...Myanmar is a country of 60 million people that has tremendous resources in mining, oil and gas, and other industries….The Burmese people are in dire need of our sustainable energy equipment, healthcare products, and oil and gas...[T]he challenges of doing business in Myanmar are fraught with risk. However, with careful planning, adequate due diligence and measured initiatives…[GE] can…do…“good” and “mak[e]…a difference” for the people of Myanmar.
