As today is a knowledge age, students who actually pursue education will have deserved opportunities

Those who passed the matriculation exam for the 2023-24 Academic Year were honoured, and cash assistance was provided for offspring of the MoI staff in the 2024-25 Academic Year.
Union Minister U Maung Maung Ohn stressed the need for staff offspring to avoid the issues that can harm learning education in student life and to try their best to become intellectuals and intelligentsia to serve the interests of the State in the future. The Union minister spoke on the occasion of honouring the students who passed the matriculation examination in the 2023-24 academic year and providing cash assistance for the offspring of staff in the 2024-25 academic year at the Ministry of Information in Nay Pyi Taw yesterday morning.

In his speech, the Union minister said that the government is implementing the national education promotion plan to enable all citizens to complete basic education, turn out outstanding students in all sectors with the promotion of education meeting the international standard and emerge highly qualified human resources.
He noted that as students will be leaders of the State in the future, they have to build themselves up to be educated with high morality.
The Union minister underlined that students do not have enough just to learn education, and they have to study basic information technology and computer technology with proficiency in foreign languages.
He recounted that the Prime Minister had given guidance on the attendance of all school-age children at schools, completion of the KG+9 educational scheme and learning of basic education for all.
The Union minister underscored that students need to understand only when they have completed higher education will they enjoy an improvement in their lives.
