The Australian Trade Commission (Austrade) announced on Tuesday that it would open an office in Rangoon shortly.

“Recognizing and responding quickly to new opportunities in Asia's growth and emerging markets is central to putting the Asian Century White Paper into practice,” said Craig Emerson, the Trade and Competitiveness Minister.

Australia says it hopes to make use of Burma's strategic position to expand education and training, financial services, telecommunications, infrastructure, mining and tourism interests in the area.

Last year, Australia lifted economic sanctions on Burma in response to the ongoing political reforms in the country.
