In this photo taken on Sept. 16, 2012, Zay Thiha, vice chairman of the Zaykabar Company, talks during an interview in Yangon, Myanmar. Zay Thiha predicts, ambitiously, that the 2,500 acre industrial zone alone could create 1.5 million stable jobs in Southeast Asia's poorest country, but few farmers see a place for themselves or their children in that bright, industrial future. Skeletons of factories for a new industrial zone rise from thick green rice paddies local farmers say were seized by Zaykabar, one of Myanmar's most powerful companies. Human rights groups say land battles could intensify because companies tied to the military and business elite are rushing to grab land as the country emerges from five decades of isolation and opens its economy.
