Associate Professor Sean Turnell was quoted in an article in the Straits Times, talking about the future of Thailand's Dawei project: Death knell for Thailand's Dawei project?

Excerpt: Professor Sean Turnell of Australia's Macquarie University, a specialist on Myanmar's economy, wrote in an e-mail: "The Dawei project is a dead man walking."

He added that it offered little more than rent payments to Myanmar. "These were of interest to Myanmar's old rent-seeking military regime, but are not so attractive to a government trying to deliver real transformational growth and employment."
