What happens with real estates in Thanlyin

The leading American beverage steel and aluminium cans manufacturer, Ball Corp., will invest 40 million US $ to built it’s plant at Thilawa Special Economic Zone, according to a company announcement on 6th of June, 2014. The company signed a lease in the Zone, which is a Myanmar–Japan joint venture, with a 51/49 per cent ratio. Ball Corp will invest 40 mio$ in the first step and raise the investment to 100 mio$.

Farmers have to move, to let companies built their plants on the ground of the 2400 hectar site situated adjacent to the Thilawa Port in Thanliyn township, where once the rice grew.

What Thilawa Project means shows the map on

http://www.slideshare.net/fullscreen/myanmarbusiness/myanmar-investment-opportunity-new-special-economic-zone-sez-8158990/2, where is announced that 500 firms have already signed MOU which means a tentative agreement, where the contracting parties signed that they intend to built their plant in Thanlyin Thilawa SEZ.

But what is Thanliyn?

Thanlyin Township comprises 17 quarters and 28 village tracts. It is home to the largest port in the country, Thilawa Port. Thanlyin Township comprises 17 quarters and 28 village tracts and has totally 181000 people in 2009. It is home to the largest port in the country, Thilawa Port.

An example of real estate projekt in Thanying is the Star Projekt, invited at a youtube-video you could watch at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z8gfYjXJflk

This will be a fast development if you compare this study with the following videos of the present Thanying.



It is difficult to imagine how the city of 17 villages will develop, unitl the Thilawa Special Economic Zone with its 500 Corporations will be finished.

Furthermore it was reported that the foreign investment in Myanmar’s mining sector amounted to $ 2,862 million as of the last week of March, 2014.

As it is very difficult to find data about the development of real estate prices in Myanmar but the prices increased significant in 2011 and 2012 in Myanmar’s capital Yangon, the Singaporean serviced apartment chain The Ascott Limited has announced moves to expand into Myanmar.



And the prices for houses in Thanlyin are still not too high.


So the real estate prices in Thanlyin could increase significanly in Thanlyin in the next years, while the Thilawa SEZ will be built.

Last but not least for all epicures a very nice picture.


The chinese holiday island Hainan is in upper mood. Real estates are an increasing investment again.

After the real estates bubble in 2011 the properties on Hainan Island, the chinese holiday paradies, is in upper mood. More and more international Hotels growing at the beach sites of the island, as the chinese growing middle class discovers the islands to make their holidays there. Also the agrar sector of the island is growing and with the increasing demand of tourists the farmers need new technology to curb the harvest of the fields, and the yield with it. So the farmers had an increase of earnings of 50% in the last years as the technology they used increased. Many farmers still cultivate their fields with traditionally methods, so cows pull the plow in the rice fields and the plants are set by the farmers with the hand into the bottom. But this process couldn’t hold on, because the customer demand need more efficient methods. As strawberries are the new fruit the chinese tourists love, the farmers let the strawberries grow on the sunny island. Also the fishers on the island which partial still live with their family on their fisherboats expect support from the government to modernize their fleet.

So it is worth for investors and people who love to make their holidays on this nice place to think about an investment now, because the prices could increase fast in the future.

Also the Hainan real-estate-compamies are in the mood to increase.

Also Hainan Pearl River Holdings Co Ltd trended up since December 2014


Advantages of TTIP

The U.S.-EU relationship is with nearly half of global GDP the largest in the world. We trade about $1 trillion in goods and services each year and invest nearly $4 trillion in each other’s economies. That all supports around 13 million jobs on both sides of the Atlantic.

The TTP would deepen those ties and decrease barriers to trade and investments. The labor market will change. Innovation will destroy many jobs but in lower income labour market the people will be needed.  Especially in Service Sector people will find work again.

US president Barack Obama was in Lattvia End of April discussing the situation in Ukraine, the security of energy supply, and the deployment of U.S. Army Europe’s 173rd Infantry Brigade Combat Team to conduct exercises in Latvia.


That shows that the TTIP punctuate the US-EU in economic and military cooperation. It is also a strategic manifestation of partnership.

The goals of TTIP include expanding access to each other’s markets for goods, services, investment, and procurement; increasing regulatory compatibility while maintaining the high levels of health, safety, labour and environmental protection our citizens expect of us; and formulating joint approaches to rules that address global trade challenges of common concern.  A high-standard TTIP agreement will make us more competitive globally, and boost economic and jobs growth, including for small and medium-sized enterprises.


But there are Americans who say that we should make international trade, but only if it make economic sense.

“We’re not trying to block anything,” Heinz Haller, president of Dow Europe, Middle East and Africa, told a separate panel at the Brussels Forum. But he suggested that exporting shale gas could raise American energy prices at a time when “the U.S. needs to repatriate a lot of industry.”

And there are NGO’s who say that the TTIP undermines the independence of the parlaments of the memberstates. That the TTIP would forebid memberstates to make laws, which decreases the profit of international corporates. The memberstates of TTIP could be charged by the global acting corporates and have to pay compensation for their lost profit. If a TTIP memberstates declare a importstop to gen manipilated seeds the corporates could charge the state. That would cancel the principle of democracy and the independence of the parlamentarians. It would lead to a global dictatorship of global acting corporates. There are only sparly informations about the negotiations of the TTIP. If it is like the critics say we should rethink the agreement, to proof if it is really necessary to throw away our government fundamentals, like democracy and freedom for the favor of economics. There were many wars, unrests and revolutions in the last years because of democracy and freedom. The new states gave us a model role. They would fall into a vacuum if we forgot our moralities.
