    Dear John, thank you for pointing to the mistake in the estimate of the farm wages in Thailand. They are indeed about $8.5 a day, which is now corrected in the blog. The actual point of cross-country wage comparison is to show that low productivity and profitability of paddy production in Myanmar put pressure on wages for hired labor. If productivity is raised, wages can go up too, as is the case in other countries.

    Should develop banking system not only in private sector but also in Government sector. Government offices and banks' transactions should base on IT. And at the same time, for every act, there should be the related rules and regulations. Myanmar market is trying to develop. Foreign investors are interesting. But some of investments want to take advantage on the lack of rules and regulations. It can effect at the developing stage.
