Suu Kyi on investment and workers' rights

At a recent ILO meeting in Geneva, following Myanmar's readmission to the body, Suu Kyi gave her position on investment and workers rights in Myanmar.  As cited in The Irrawaddy:
"We need investments to be linked to job creation... We understand that investments are not altruistic … Investments must lead to profits, but we would like these profits to be shared with our people."
Reporting on this same speech, the BBC quote Suu Kyi as follows:
"I would like to call for aid and investment that will strengthen the democratisation process by promoting social and economic progress that is beneficial to political reform,"
