1898  Senator Ludlam: To ask the Minister for Foreign Affairs— 

(1) Given that, in a speech made to the Association of International Life Offices, Daw Aung San Suu Kyi asked countries to prevent their companies from partnering with the Myanmar Oil and Gas Enterprise due to the lack of transparency and accountability, will the Government take steps to stop Australian companies investing in Burma’s oil and gas industry.

(2) Will the Government apply internationally recognised standards such as the International Monetary Fund’s Code of Good Practices on Fiscal Transparency in its trade with Burma, and require Australian companies to be subject to the code including the publication of accounts.
