Only Myanmar's govt-controlled media allowed to cover meeting between Tony Tan and Thein Sein

Eleven Myanmar, 2 Apr 2013
Singaporean President Tony Tan Keng Yam began a five-day state visit to Myanmar in Nay Pyi Taw on Monday by offering to help set up a vocational training institute in Yangon as part of Singapore's efforts to help Myanmar develop economically.
Unlike other visits of heads of state to Myanmar, however, domestic private media have been sidelined in coverage of the visit and there has been no public welcome from the generally hospitable and cheerful people of Myanmar.
Tan met with President Thein Sein at the Presidential Palace on Monday to discuss enhancing bilateral ties. The two leaders touched on a variety of subjects, including the establishment of a vocational training institute, the political development of Myanmar, possible investment by Singaporean businesses, housing development and human-resource development, a press release from the Presidential Office said.
Only government-controlled media covered the meeting as reporters from private media were no invited. Full story
