While many countries are willing to help with capacity building like training nurses, there is still no taker for rebuilding the hospital itself.

While countries like India are willing to offer training courses for Parliament staff, Suu Kyi said there are more immediate requirements like setting up a reference library for proper Parliament function. She, incidentally, heads the Parliamentary committee responsible for its upgrade.
The subtlety of the difference in approach from the government was not lost on the Indian side. During his meeting with Myanmar's political leadership in Nay Pi Taw, Khurshid was asked if India would step up the pace on hydel projects, particularly increase the capacity of the Tamanti project.
