May all the national people of the Union enjoy health and well-being during the auspicious New Year occasion. While the government is working for the COVID-19 vaccination programme, people need to follow the rules and directives of the state leaders and the Ministry of Health and Sports to prevent infection of this pandemic.
People should join hands with the government to improve the education quality of the country as it is crucial for the development of the country in the post-COVID-19.
It is pleasing to see that the government is putting emphasis on the economic sector in trying for the livelihood the public and the creation of employment opportunities. All the stakeholders in the economic sector need to work for the successful digital transformation.
All the national people should be united in striving for the Union peace as early as possible as it is necessary for the better rule of law and security, services in health and education, businesses and social sectors.
On this New Year, I wish that all the national people could overcome COVID-19 pandemic and establish a democratic state with lasting peace and prosperity.

Wanna Kyaw Htin Dr Khin Shwe
(Chairman of Zaykabar Company Limited)
On this auspicious occasion of New Year, I wish all people of the world and Myanmar citizens an early escape from COVID-19 pandemic and good health.
The year has changed from 2020 to 2021, and it is such an important year for all people. All as you know, all the countries report high casualties while many business people face recession and all have to struggle in a serious quagmire due to COVID-19 pandemic.
During the COVID-19 outbreak, all the people from different walks of life are prioritized not to be infected with the diseases as well as their keeps. When the pandemic ends, it needs better economic recovery to ease the food and accommodation concerns of grassroots people.
Myanmar has better things than other countries as it boasts vast areas of land to conduct breeding and agriculture and better soil, weather and human resources to produce food products.
If we correctly apply these advantages, the country will have the best opportunities for recovery processes than other countries in the post-COVID-19 period.
Myanmar has plenty of natural resources, and so it is easier to conduct recovery plans than other countries. If the relevant officials create better changes and systematic management, the situation will be better.
I hope there would be good news for the country and citizens in the coming New Year.
