U.S. commerce secretary in Myanmar to discuss investment promotion

U.S. Commerce Secretary Penny Pritzker met Myanmar President Thein Sein on Thursday and discussed promoting investment with a focus on energy, agriculture and trade, state media said.

During their meeting at the presidential palace in the administrative capital Naypyitaw Thursday morning, they also discussed the planned opening of the Foreign Commercial Service, an outpost of the U.S. Commerce Department, in Yangon, Myanmar's commercial hub, the reports said. The details of the talks were not immediately available.

Pritzker arrived in Naypyitaw Thursday morning on the last leg of her three-nation tour joining a delegation of U.S. CEOs and the U.S.-ASEAN Business Council to three Southeast Asian countries. She earlier visited Vietnam and the Philippines.

Pritzker will meet people from civic groups and the business community in Yangon on Friday before heading back to the United States in the evening.
