In the past, China’s ambition for fast economic growth had taken precedence over all other issues, but in recent years it also started to pay attention to its international reputation as was demonstrated during the last Olympic Games. Given Myanmar’s unenviable record of human rights, what will be the future of Sino-Myanmar relations in the next five to ten years?
