French firm pulls out of Myanmar dam project


Yangon: The French multinational energy company Engie has pulled out of a controversial dam project in Myanmar following pressure from a campaign aimed at discouraging foreign investment in the South-East Asian country’s conflict zones, the rights advocacy group Burma Campaign UK (BCUK) announced Wednesday.

In December, London-based BCUK released a “Dirty List” of 49 companies that were allegedly linked to human rights violations and environmental destruction in Myanmar.
