Members of ethnic literature and culture groups from throughout the states and regions began the first day of their field trip to Nay Pyi Taw by first visiting the Water Fountain Garden yesterday.
The field trip is organized by the Ministry of Ethnic Affairs and includes 44 association members from Shan State (North) and 37 from Rakhine State with officials from the ministry acting as guides.
