Burma: Economic Sanctions [Updated August 27, 2008]   [open pdf - 66KB]

This Congressional Research Service report produces a table of existing sanctions placed on Burma, and also includes an analysis of future options that the United States has to expand sanctions. From the text: "On October 19, 2007, President George W. Bush issued Executive Order 13449. This followed a September 25, 2007 statement by President Bush that sanctions against Burma, which have been in place since 1997, would be tightened to specifically target leading Burmese officials and impose additional financial and travel sanctions. This report provides background information on existing economic sanctions against Burma and possible options to expand sanctions. It will be updated as events warrant."
