The ‘Battle of the Titans’ is nothing new to Myanmar. Burma/Myanmar had been buffeted by the Cold War, but its internal disputes and conflicts were far more damaging. Now with the Great Game Redux, the larger public would want no part in it. Yet the current administration led by Aung San Suu Kyii in September 2018 signed the Memorandum of Understanding for the China Myanmar Economic Corridor (CMEC) without any details being made public. This Corridor will have implications far beyond infrastructure and economic development. China expects more trouble to arise from the South China Sea, and therefore wants to use Myanmar to by-pass it. This means that Myanmar assumes even more importance from China’s perspective.
