Post-socialist Myanmar and the East Asian Development Model

decades, examples being Japan, Korea, Taiwan, China as well as Malaysia and Thailand; hence, the prospects for Myanmar are relatively good. In its report on the economic potential of Myanmar, ADB ( Findlay et al. 2015 ) showed a lot of optimism. In the SWOT (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats) analysis, it considered strengths of the authorities and the society to carry out economic and political reforms; the richness of natural resources, including minerals, gas and also water resources and arable land; as well as a young society. Myanmar has 13 million

Asphalt Mixtures with Limestone Aggregate for Base Layer


Asphalt mixtures are mixtures of mineral aggregates, filler, bitumen and eventually additives in proportions determined by recipe designed in the laboratory. Asphalt mixtures used as base course are bituminous concrete.

The natural aggregates are granular materials of mineral origin that come from natural or artificial crushing of the rocks. In our country there are the various rocks: eruptive or magmatic rocks, metamorphic rocks, sedimentary rocks.

To the category of sedimentary rocks belong limestone. Sedimentary rocks are characterized by relatively high porosity and a pronounced stratification, which causes mechanical resistance to be low and vary by direction of load. Due to the structure less dense and weaker mechanical resistance, the limestone are used less in heavy traffic pavement structures.

This paper presents an asphalt mixture recipe for the base layer developed in the Laboratory of Roads from Technical University of Civil Engineering Bucharest (TUCEB), using limestone aggregates extracted from Hoghiz Quarry. The paper contains laboratory test results to determine the recipe and laboratory findings leading to the schedule of product.

Identification of prospective industrial clusters in Slovakia

underestimated. The manufacture of basic metals was rather stable in time, while the manufacture of other non-metallic mineral products was not considered a cluster candidate in recent years. On the other hand, in 2015 and 2016, the manufacture of pharmaceuticals emerged among potential clusters. According to Fig. 2 , this industry was not presented in previous years because similarly to the case with the forestry, the related employment data in the Banská Bystrica region was not published by the Statistical Office of the Slovak Republic due to some confidentiality reasons
