On Myanmar, Washington Moves Cautiously to Avoid Losing More Ground to China
Without the prospect of international cooperation, the United States is proceeding cautiously with pressure on Myanmar's military government in spite of a week of deadly crackdowns on anti-coup protesters. For now, it is stopping short even from imposing sectoral or deeper country-level trade restrictions, to say nothing of more aggressive financial sanctions, in order to keep Chinese influence in Myanmar from growing.

EU Economy Commissioner Paolo Gentiloni speaks during a press conference after a virtual meeting at the European Council in Brussels, Belgium, on Feb. 15, 2021. 
The EU Moves Ahead With a Corporate Tax Transparency Plan
The European Union will move forward with a plan to force large multinational companies to be more transparent about the taxes that they pay in every member state. This measure will likely expose the special (and unpopular) deals that small countries often offer to corporations and, indirectly, increase EU pressure for higher taxation of digital companies. The Portuguese government, which holds the rotating presidency of the European Union, announced on Feb. 25 that it has secured enough support from member states to move forward with a plan to force multinationals with revenue of more than 750 million euros that operate in the bloc to reveal their tax payments and activities for each member state. The proposal will now move to the European Council and the European Parliament, which means that it could be months before it is enforced. Opponents to the plan, which include Luxembourg and Ireland, could challenge its

COVID-19 Aid Offers Israel an Opportunity for Regional Reconciliation
Israel is using COVID-19 humanitarian support to conduct diplomacy with Syria, and the success of that strategy could prompt similar offers and efforts to thaw Israel's difficult relationship with Lebanon. As part of a recent prisoner exchange with Syria, Israel purchased an undisclosed amount of Russian Sputnik V vaccines for Syria, which has been unable to secure and distribute doses of COVID-19 vaccine due to its crashing currency and battered healthcare system. The deal followed nearly a year of quiet humanitarian cooperation between Hamas and Israel during the COVID-19 pandemic, which has now seen Israel allow limited doses of Sputnik V vaccines to enter the Gaza Strip.

An IAEA Deal Buys Iran More Time to Pursue Sanctions Relief
Iran’s compromise with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) buys Tehran three more months to broach negotiations with the United States in the hopes of securing sanctions relief. During IAEA Director-General Rafael Grossi’s recent visit to Iran, the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) said it would stop the voluntary implementation of its so-called “Additional Protocol” on Feb. 23, a confidential agreement that allows U.N. inspectors to monitor Tehran’s nuclear program and visit its facilities, particularly with short notice. But the two sides also reached a compromise on verification and monitoring that will maintain limited IAEA access to nuclear sites.

Where Is the U.S. Economy Going?
The U.S. economic outlook remains one of muddled optimism with the economy growing. Still, the expectations for renewed, sustainable growth should be tempered by the reality that COVID-19 has led to long-term malignancies in the U.S. and global economies.

Draghi’s Appointment as Italian Prime Minister Will Create Short-Term Stability
The appointment of former European Central Bank President Mario Draghi as Italy's new prime minister will create temporary political stability in the country and unlock significant EU financial assistance to it.
