A Chinese-invested garment factory in an industrial zone in Hlaingtharyar, a new satellite town in the north of Myanmar's Yangon, was raided by employees Thursday.
Chinese embassy officials immediately contacted the foreign, interior ministries of Myanmar, and Yangon provincial authorities, urging them to take actions, ensure the safety of Chinese nationals and protect the property interests of Chinese firms.
