Myanmar’s new government is making its international debut. In mid-August, Beijing welcomed Daw Aung San Suu Kyi on her first visit to China since becoming Myanmar’s state counsellor and foreign minister. This followed her trips to Myanmar’s ASEAN neighbours Laos and Thailand and preceded President U Htin Kyaw’s landmark visit to India. On September 14 to 15, Daw Aung San Suu Kyi will travel to Washington, DC. Myanmar’s busy diplomatic calendar carries special significance after the landslide electoral victory of the National League for Democracy (NLD) in November 2015.
