Commander-in-Chief of Defence Services Senior General Min Aung Hlaing attended and delivered an address at the ceremony to honour marine and aviation youth held at Zeyathiri Beikman in Nay Pyi Taw yesterday afternoon.
The Senior General said countries were training the youth to help them overcome challenges. The government is working to ensure it can train outstanding youth who can display the national spirit and a strong sense of national duty. Efforts are being made to instil in the youth the importance of developing a human society with strong national unity and ensure constant human resource development to defend the country, he said.
The Senior General presented gifts to the trainees from the marine and aviation training courses and received the gifts presented by the youth. Later, Ma Khin Sabei Aung from the marine youth training course and Ma Pyae Pyae Phyo from the aviation youth training course gave speeches thanking the Senior General.
