Burma's pro-democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi has made her first major international engagement after more than two decades of isolation.

Addressing world business leaders at the World Economic Forum in Bangkok, she called for Burma to take its place in a more prosperous and peaceful world but she said there were many problems to overcome.

She said she wanted to eradicate corruption so that investment in the country would mean jobs for people.
