NEW YORK (AP) — The Coca-Cola Co. plans to start selling its drinks in Myanmar for the first time in 60 years, following the U.S. government's
decision to suspend investment sanctions on the country for its democratic reforms.
Myanmar is one of three countries where Coca-Cola doesn't do business. The other two are Cuba and North Korea.
The world's biggest soft drink maker said Thursday it will start doing business in the country as soon as the U.S. government issues a license
allowing American companies to make such investments.
I don't drink Coke much any more but this is a very important symbol of the direction the world is headed.
It's only a matter of months before both North Koreans and Cuba are enjoying this cold and refreshing beverage.
