Hedge fund billionaire George Soros began the new year with a meeting with Myanmar's most prominent pro-democracy activist.
Soros met with Aung San Suu Kyi, the winner of the 1991 Nobel Peace Prize and a political prisoner for most of the 20 years prior to her release from house arrest in 2010, on Monday in Yangon, the former Burma's largest city.
Soros and Suu Kyi were scheduled to discuss Soros' philanthropy in the country; his Open Society Foundation currently gives about $2 million to projects in Myanmar.
Soros' visit follows that last month of U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and comes ahead of a planned visit by British Foreign Secretary William Hague.
