ILO Lifts All Restrictions on Burma

An article in The Irrawaddy on the announcement by the International Labour Organisation (ILO) to lift restrictions on Myanmar. The restrictions, which were imposed by the UN agency in 2000, included a recommendation that its 185 member states limit relations with Burma to avoid perpetuating forced labor in the country, a major problem under the former military regime, which ceded power to a nominally civilian government in 2011.
