Taunggyi, 22 Nov — Vice President Dr Sai Mauk Kham delivered a New Year address at the 2109 Shan New Year festival held at the Aweiyar hot-air balloon ground in Taunggyi, on Friday sources said.
The State Constitution allows ethnic groups to reinforce their cultural heritage, with the vice president saying that periodicals in ethnic languages can now be published as long as they adhere to existing laws.
With 55 townships and five self-administrative regions, Shan State is the largest of all 14 states and regions, Dr Sai Mauk Kham said, adding that other significant characteristics of Shan State are the world-famous Golden Triangle Region, Pinlong, the birthplace of the ethnic conference in the country’s struggle for independence and the world-famous Inle Lake.
He urged Shan nationals to strive to turn their homeland into the most developed region while living in peace and harmony with other ethnic communities.
Shan State Hluttaw Speaker U Sai Lon Seng read out a message sent by Pyidaungsu Hluttaw Speaker Thura U Shwe Mann, with a message sent by Daw Aung San Suu Kyi, chairwoman of the Committee for Rule of Law and Stability of the Pyithu Hluttaw, placed on record.
Vice President Dr Sai Mauk Kham viewed booths of agriculture and Shan literature, culture and history.
The vice president later visited a Buddhist community centre in Taunggyi, where he paid homage and presented offertories to Sayadaws.
This year’s Shan New Year falls on 22 November.
