Group Discussion > Burma back open for buisness

So we just lifted sanctions against the jade trade in Burma, does this mean the miners will get more heroin and AIDS in exchange for the finest Burmese jade available from the only source of jadeite jade in the world? The Myanmar Military controls the jade mines too, and yet this article never mentions jade, while expressing the most concern about the oil and gas industry!
