Precious gems are valuable and can be sold. Yangon is famous for mondern university, etc. Mayn Mar was part of British India for many years. Ang San Suu Kyi has become a leader she was awarded the Nobel Peace prize for her efforts. Socialism is an economic system in which most buisinsesses are owned and runed by a government.

There may or may not be drugs. If there is drugs then there is medicine to take if u get sick of the drugs at Myanmar. Bad people always do drugs there and good people dont take drugs. If the parents do go there for a visit they may take drugs and smoke and buy more drugs to do more smoking. Never smoke at myanmar or you willo get really sick and may die after smoking 100 drugs a day. That is really bad for the people the do smoke a lot there. There is a lot of smokers at Myanmar and they mgiht die of the drugs after 20 each day pr more than 20 a day like 50 a day. The kids may get sick to if they get near the smoke from the drug. I guess every parent smokes or maybe half of the people at Myanmar smoke. Remember the drugs are really bad for you to do and you get really really sick.

Economy

Myanmar's economy is benefiting from investment in oil, natural gas, and power, as well as from growth in tourism, construction, and exports. Investment environment has improved following reforms to unify multiple exchange rates and as industrial countries ease their economic sanctions on Myanmar.
