Myanmar: How worse can it get? Videoconference

Close to five months after the February 1 coup that ended Myanmar's democratic experiment and brought the military back to power, the situation in the country remains volatile with an expanding civil war, while international action remains ineffective given divisions between the West and China, and ASEAN's flaws.

As the political and humanitarian crises deepen, how are Myanmar companies, civil society organizations and media reacting? What are the options for the international community and investors? What lies ahead and can it get worse?
