Shwe Project Stakeholders

by Michael last modified 2006-11-13 22:29

Stakeholders, by definition, have a direct or indirect interest in the processes and outcomes of any development project.

Drilling party of Daewoo and SPDC.In order to make understanding the complexities of the Shwe Project a little easier, we have organised Shwe stakeholders into three categories:

Governments: Burma, India, Bangladesh, and South Korea all have interests in this gas extraction. Please read our governments section for more information.

Corporations: Five corporations--some governmental bodies and others privately held--have direct and controlling interests in the outcome of the Shwe gas project. Daewoo International (South Korea), MOGE (Burma), ONGC Videsh Ltd. (India), the Gas Authority of India, Ltd. (GAIL) (India), and the Korean Gas Corporation (KOGAS) (South Korea) are--by their complicity in this project--directly linked to the Burmese military regime and therefore opposed to the interests of the people of Burma. For a full list of corporations who support the Burmese military regime, please read the corporations section.

Peoples: Because this project would use their land, the interests of the many minority peoples of Chin and Arakan State in Western Burma, Bangladesh, and the Indian states of Tripura, Mizoram, and West Bengal,  are vital. Check out the peoples section to learn more about the people involved and how they could be affected if this project is allowed to go through.
