YANGON, Myanmar (AP) — General Electric has become the first American company to sign business deals in Myanmar since Washington eased key sanctions on the former pariah state.
GE signed agreements Saturday with two private hospitals in Myanmar's main city, Yangon, to sell sophisticated medical equipment.

Thanks for GE link. I forgot General Electric's contributions to the aircraft industry.
Yes, sadly, if Americans want to see 21st cen infrastructure, they will have to travel. Americans either are purposefully being kept ignorant, are ignorant by choice, or are under the delusion that they still represent innovation as they once did not too long ago.
Well, I'm probably being too harsh, as there are some Americans with good ideas and some 21st cen infrastructure planned...but very little relatively speaking to show for it. And what's so very sad is that we could have been so much more by now. Rather than having the latest Higgs Boson news coming from Europe, it could have come from Texas
What set the US on a downward spiral was not having comparable jobs to replace the jobs lost (whether through technology or outsourcing). When horse drawn carriages were no longer produced, workers could go to the new auto industry, for ex. Well, in a global economy, Americans will have to learn quickly how to not just stay afloat but to swim like a gold medalist.
