This will be the Burma regime change after Aung San Suu Kyi's second visit to China, but also for the first time to visit the identity of government officials.

Aung San Suu Kyi's good neighbor policy of diplomacy to deal with domestic and international problems can not be separated from China

Xu Liping said that Aung San Suu Kyi was very clear in the treatment of bilateral relations in the context, "she said China is a 'move away neighbors', between neighbors should do a good job", so this is access to Aung San Suu Kyi, the basic attitude. Aung San Suu Kyi took office in diplomacy perform good neighbor policy, "for example, the first visit to the country of Laos, so she paid more attention to and neighbors friendly relations, this is Aung San Suu Kyi characteristics is very important". In addition, Aung San Suu Kyi, the new government came to power after the first reception of foreign minister is China's Foreign Minister Wang Yi, which reflects the between China and Myanmar in the development of relations between the two countries with a strong driving force.

Aung San Suu Kyi why to China to develop friendly relations more positive attitude? Facing the question raised by reporters, Xu Liping pointed out that Aung San Suu Kyi that Myanmar's domestic and international issues are inseparable from China, because of Myanmar's main problem is the domestic peace process.

Xu Liping said that Myanmar on 31 August to 21st century Panglong conference "was held, after 1947, under the auspices of the Aung San Suu Kyi's father, general Aung San held" Panglong conference ", reached at the meeting of the Panglong agreement" to the reconciliation and unity of all ethnic groups in Burma made important contributions. But due to the later political volatility in Myanmar, the process of national reconciliation in frustration, and falling into long central government troops and local ethnic armed confrontation, conflict, so this is successive Burmese governments a piece of heart disease.

Aung San Suu Kyi can be said to his father's mission, 21st century Panglong conference "actually want to put Burma's ethnic peace process moving forward a step, Myanmar to take this lay a national reconciliation, then achieve the unity of all ethnic groups in Myanmar.

Because of the 2200 kilometers border between China and Myanmar, around the boundary line has many ethnic armed, so the peace process in Myanmar needs the positive role of China. In recent years, should be invited to the Ministry of foreign affairs of Myanmar, special envoy of Chinese Asian Affairs has been observed to witness Burma peace process. Special Envoy Sun Guoxiang recently accepted Xinhua News Agency reporters, said that as Myanmar's friendly neighbor, China has long been a focus of support for the peace process in Myanmar, has been in play to promote peace talks, willing parties to early to reach a political solution, and hope that Myanmar in the foundation for peace and economic development, improve people's livelihood. China facilitator, willing to do to promote peace in Burma. China sent a special envoy to deal with related matters, which in fact reflects China's positive role in dealing with the relationship between the two countries. As can be seen from the above, this time Aung San Suu Kyi's visit to Beijing's domestic peace process will become one of the content of the interview.

Aung San Suu Kyi visits China because Burma wants to develop the economy and improve people's livelihood

Burma is world bank listed in the world under one of the developed countries, in the experience of the domestic political stability, and Western political, economic blockade, Myanmar is undone. Although the Wu Dengsheng government to a certain extent, to achieve the transformation of Burma, but after all, he was affected by the former military government, so the western government of the Wu Dengsheng era still have reservations. For Aung San Suu Kyi, Western to her and Myanmar's wariness basically has been eliminated, and she now faces the most important task is to develop people's solution to the economic problem, and the urgent need to invest in China.

In recent years, although China's investment in Burma significantly reduced, but even if there is a reduction, China's cumulative investment in Burma is still living in Burma's first foreign investment.

Xu told reporters that the reporter said, can not deny that some of China's major investment projects in Burma suffered setbacks. For example, he said, including lerby Tang copper mine, the myitsone Hydropower Station suffered downtime, because these are the G2G (government to government) project, should say, Thein Sein government declared a unilateral suspension of the project, in a certain degree of China Myanmar caused damage.

Recently, Myanmar's new government has set up a myitsone Hydropower Station assessment team, the myitsone hydropower station in the vicinity of the environment, investment and other aspects of a comprehensive assessment, of China Myanmar this project made a final "destiny". Firstly, the expression of the Myanmar is a responsible attitude. Aung San Suu Kyi, the establishment of the group re evaluation of the project, Xu Liping think it is a matter of very welcome, so to further eliminate because investment stranded between China and Myanmar trust some of the damage caused.

In the economic and trade cooperation, Xu Liping especially pointed out that China will strengthen cooperation in the field of agriculture. He said that because Burma is the world's major rice exporter, Burma agriculture in infrastructure, water, technology and other aspects of China and there are a lot of space for cooperation.

In addition, China on non traditional security cooperation in space is also great. After the Mekong massacre, China, Burma, Laos, Thailand formed a four joint cruise mechanism. The four countries' cruise control system has a very good protective effect on the non traditional security of the Mekong River and the fight against crime. In addition, the region is also a lot of drug trafficking, smuggling of population, so from this point of view, the cooperation between the two sides is also great.

Burma needs a lot of investment in infrastructure construction in China is facing challenges

According to Xu Liping introduction, Burma's infrastructure is relatively backward, in terms of infrastructure also requires a large number of foreign investment funds. Xu Liping to myself I visited is located in the outskirts of Myanmar Diluowa Economic Development Zone for example, this development zone is to Sino Japanese joint venture stationed in Myanmar. Recently, there are more than 50 enterprises stationed, 50% of which comes from Japanese companies, but also from companies stationed in China, Thailand, Singapore, although there are Diluowa economic development zone is located in the vicinity of Yangon, but highway are less than China's county level, so this infrastructure also need to vigorously improve and build.

Because Burma is investment depression, low labor costs, Chinese some labor-intensive enterprises have moved to Burma. Xu Liping said that Myanmar is now missing is infrastructure, such as roads, bridges, ports, and electricity, he said, these in Myanmar's factories in China are owned power, so there is still a lot of room to the future cooperation in infrastructure construction in China and Myanmar, but there are also many challenges to face.

Xu Xu pointed out that the first challenge is the Chinese people's image of Burma is not very good. Since before the Chinese government and the Burmese government dealing, the Myanmar national think China is the junta's accomplice, the image of China demonized, which Western rendering and also some of the association.

The second challenge is that some of China's counterfeit products are flooding in Burma. Fake and shoddy products through the China Myanmar border smuggling into the country, these products seriously damage the image of Chinese enterprises, the future of China Myanmar should strengthen the crackdown, maintenance of Chinese enterprise product image.
