India PM Manmohan Singh's historic visit to Burma

India's Prime Minister Manmohan Singh is making the first official visit to Burma by an Indian premier since 1987.

He says India wants stronger trade and investment ties with its neighbour as Burma continues to open up to the outside world.

There are around two to three million ethnic Indians in Burma. As the BBC's Sanjoy Majumder reports from Rangoon, Burma is open for business.
