VOA’s David Ensor and Than Lwin Htun in Napyitaw,Burma


VOA Director David Ensor, Burmese Parliament House Speaker, Thura Shwe Mann and VOA Burmese Service Chief Than Lwin Htun held preliminary talks in Burma’s capital, Naypyitaw on Monday, June 4th 2012.

Burma, also known as Myanmar lived under a military dictatorship for decades- with enforced oppressive laws including the suppression of freedom of speech and expression. Recently, however, with the country’s willingness to open its arms to changes, there are talks of press freedom in the country, and VOA is at the forefront in covering this Southeast Asian nation.

What do you think of Burma’s road to reforms and the changes in media law?  What do you hope to see VOA do in the country?

























  1. Wow! Great step for Burma!
