Myanmar President Thein Sein is in Washington this week for a historic meeting with President Obama.

Not long ago, Thein Sein was on a travel black list.

But in the past two years, Myanmar has undergone dramatic political change that pleases the White House.

And Thein Sein is hoping that will mean more US investment in Myanmar.

But, American companies are going to face some challenges in Myanmar.
