Since the new government took office in March 2011, Myanmar/Burma has embarked on a remarkable process of reform significant for its own people and for the region. However, dealing with this legacy of conflict, poverty, oppression and weak institutions will be the work of decades. The EU is strongly committed to, and supportive of, Myanmar/Burma's democratic and economic transition, and in 2013 agreed a Comprehensive Framework which clearly outlines the EU's policy priorities over the coming years, including support to political, social and economic development, fostering respect for human rights, and assisting the Government in rebuilding its place in the international community.
