An NGO monitoring Burma’s oil, gas and mining industries said that despite international praise being heaped on the government many of its deals with companies remain “secretive and closed off from public scrutiny”. “Not one company has ever disclosed their contracts or payments to the [Burma] government, so the people … have no idea if their country is getting a fair deal, and if some of those billions in income are being misused,” Earth Rights International (ERI) campaigns director Paul Donowitz told The Irrawaddy.
