Title: BURMA-CHINA CHRONOLOGY: 2nd Century BC to 1999
Date of publication: 1999
Description/subject: This chronology was compiled in 1999 by David Arnott as part of the research for his chapter on Burma-China relations in “Challenges to democratization in Burma: Perspectives on multilateral and bilateral responses. Chapter 3 - China–Burma relations” published by International IDEA in 2001. Most of the extracts are from news sources, notably the official Burmese daily The Working People’s Daily (WPD), re-named The New Light of Myanmar (NLM) in April 1993. Most extracts from 1987-1996 are taken from The Burma Press Summary compiled by Hugh MacDougall. Other sources include the US Govt’s Foreign Broadcast Information Service (FBIS) and the Internet version of NLM. A lighter China-Burma chronology updated to end 2001 exists on The Irrawaddy research pages at
