The United States has eased some sanctions on investment and relations with Burma in response to political reform there.

But Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said broader laws on sanctions against Burma would remain in place to safeguard against "backsliding".

Restrictions on investments have been relaxed and the first US ambassador in 22 years has been announced.

The move follows limited democratic reform in Burma.
