. Myanmar, also known as Burma, is a sovereign state in Southeast Asia bordering China, Thailand, India, Laos and Bangladesh. One third of Myanmar`s total reach of 1,930 kilometers constitutes an uninterrupted coastline along the Bay of Bengal and the Andaman Sea. Myanmar has been under military control since a coup in 1962, but since 2011, military control has been increasingly eased. This has allowed the country to quickly improve the country`s external relations, especially with the United States (United States), Japan and the European Union (EU). As a result, trade and other sanctions imposed by the US and the EU against Myanmar have been eased, hindering the path to the continuation of the dynamic economy in Southeast Asia. .
