Leaders gather for 'Asia's Davos' meeting in Burma

Hundreds of world leaders and industry heads are meeting in Burma, as the country tries to attract foreign investors.

Burma's administrative capital, Naypyitaw, is hosting the 22nd World Economic Forum on East Asia, bringing together 900 delegates from more than 50 countries.

These are seemingly changing times for Burma, with hundreds of political prisoners being freed and democracy champion Aung San Suu Kyi welcomed into a new parliament.

The BBC's Chief Business Correspondent Linda Yueh has been looking at how moves to industrialise, could transform this underdeveloped nation.
