Title: Database of companies linked with Burma
Date of publication: 28 October 2002
Description/subject: "On 28 October [2002], on behalf of the Global Unions Group, the ICFTU is releasing a new database of over 325 foreign companies with business links to Burma - links that help to sustain the brutal and repressive dictatorship in that country. While some prominent companies have withdrawn since the initial release of the database one year ago, Global Unions have added a further 92 companies which continue to do business with Burma or have been pursuing business links with the junta...." "The following database has been compiled by the ICFTU, based on publicly available information. It is a database of companies which appear, from the information available, to have some form of relationship with Burma. A company was added to the list as soon as one link was found between it and Burma or its regime during the period following 15 November 2000, the date of the ILO decision. In some cases, this link will be trade with, investment in or other business activities in Burma, for others it may be direct contact between the company and officials of the regime. It may also be that the company promotes or advertises tourism in the country... This list is not exhaustive. We are ready to correct any factual errors which it may contain. As we receive information on further companies which are active in Burma we will approach them in the same way and, depending on their reaction, add them to the list."

In response to calls from Burma’s democracy movement, the Burma Campaign UK and other campaign groups around the world have been pressuring companies to sever business ties with Burma...

Title: USA Engage - results of a search for "burma"
Description/subject: "...USA*ENGAGE brings together Americans from all regions, sectors and segments of our society to speak out for a more effective foreign policy. Even though a large number of American companies, farmers, and workers are hurt by sanctions that take away US export markets and undermine our international competitiveness, Congress and the Administration cannot hear from only activists promoting a narrow sanctions agenda. A large coalition provides the voice to ensure that American policy-makers listen to all interested parties, including those who oppose sanctions..."
