"It is too early to say whether the Burmese government is taking the lead on the issue of transparency," said Wong Aung, director of the advocacy group Shwe Gas Movement, which has devoted several years to promoting fairness in the gas and oil sector.
"We have been pushing them [corporate stakeholders] to publish this information, however, there are challenges in identifying who the stakeholders even are," said Wong Aung, a member of Burma's EITI civil society steering committee and director of the advocacy group Shwe Gas Movement. "I do not believe that crony companies will disclose this kind of information," he added, emphasizing that the data is only meaningful to concerned communities if it is complete, inclusive, and applies especially to those corporate entities that are most reluctant to cooperate. "There are more than 100 [extractive] projects operating in Burma informally, illegally, with no contract and no accountability," he said.

Protest group the Shwe Gas Movement repeatedly called for the project to be abandoned, citing several human rights abuses during the construction - including confiscation of land, environmental damage and poor labour practices."We cannot let this project set a bad example for future investors," said Wong Aung, coordinator of the Shwe Gas Movement.

MATA technical advisor and steering committee member Wong Aung said that Letpadaung was just one case of activists facing difficulties when they challenge mining and other projects across Myanmar.
Many have been prevented by local authorities from holding educational forums about EITI or other resource issues, he said. "There are so many problems, but they are happening outside of Yangon and Naypyidaw. To hold training or workshops in the remote areas, we need permission," said Wong Aung, also known for his work as director of the Shwe Gas Movement. Activists have been jailed under laws limiting the right to protest or using trespassing laws, with the number of people in Myanmar's jails considered political prisoners swelling over the past year. Wong Aung warned that the international community could be "ambushed" by a government that may be taking part in EITI only to clean up its image and attract more investment, while continuing to stifle efforts toward accountability. As for transparency, the Myanmar government had shared the details of some large-scale mining projects, Wong Aung said. "The government tries to protect them," Wong Aung said.
