The 7th anniversary of the Centre for Myanmar Affairs Studies (CMAS) of the Information and Public Relations Department (IPRD) under the Ministry of Information was held in Yangon yesterday.
Speaking at the event, Union Minister for Information U Maung Maung Ohn said that the IPRD established the Centre for Myanmar Affairs Studies on 15 June 2016. Since its establishment, it has been conducting research on political issues, economic and social affairs of the country and impacts from various points of view for seven years.
Moreover, it publishes journals – Myanmar Affairs once every three months, Global Affairs once every two months and Ethnic Affairs once every four months featuring the progress in political, economic and social affairs of the country, traditions, cultures, and cultural heritage of ethnic people and prominent cases of the world.
He also appreciated the efforts of the Centre for Myanmar Affairs Studies for publishing as usual despite the challenges.
He then pointed out the research sector as one of the requirements for the development of the country. He added that the neighbouring countries and international countries currently focus on the research in relevant sectors and policymakers also emphasize research-based recommendations in drafting policies.
In November 2021, the Centre for Myanmar Affairs Studies was recognized and it also updated the quality of articles and publishing quality of the journals. Books and journals are published not for profit but for the public to gain knowledge and make references or research.
‘‘In 2022, experts of the Centre for Myanmar Affairs Studies organized talk shows such as ‘Myanmar and ASEAN Relations: Pros and Cons’ by Saya Ko Ko, ‘How to move the current trend’ by Saya U Yan Kyaw and ‘Russia-Ukraine Conflict and global economic implications’ by Saya U Maung Maung Myint Thein and we received positive and effective recommendations,’’ said the minister.
After the ceremony, the Union minister hosted a dinner for participants.
On the same evening, the Union minister attended the ceremony to honour the artistes of the “Way Ma Nay Chin Bu” movie that won the best movie academy award for 2022 held at Western Park in Bahan of Yangon and cordially greeted the performers. — MNA/KTZH
