Long a fighter against oppression inside Myanmar, Aung San Suu Kyi has used her first foreign trip in 24 years to fight for her countrymen suffering abroad — millions of economic migrants unable to work at home but vulnerable to exploitation elsewhere.
"We would like to have a law which would benefit the majority of our people," said Win Aung, president of Myanmar's Federation of Chambers of Commerce and Industry.
Win Aung said he came to Thailand illegally, hoping he'd earn enough money to send proceeds to his family.
