As Myanmar tries to diversify its dependence on China with all things infrastructure, the country is being invaded by Chinese companies to build the one of the most important infrastructure pieces needing to move the country forward. To say the bidding process for this billion-dollar solar tender has been a mess is an understatement.

This is a short time table for even normal periods let alone during the no travel restrictions brought on by COVID-19. Because there was an uproar among investors, the deadline was extended.
