Just heard this morning that Coca-Cola has opened a bottling plant outside of Yangon. For the first time in 60 years, you can now buy a Coke in Myanmar. From Muhtar Kent, Coca-Cola chairman and CEO: "we are deeply honored to reintroduce Coca-Cola to Myanmar and begin to become a growing part of the fabric of life here". Don't know how I feel about this. As a benchmark, shown above is a photo from downtown Yangon in 2004, i.e. pre-Coca-Cola signage. We'll see how this goes.
