The Pyithu Hluttaw handed over 6,175 books and brochures and 1,300 posters on the Hluttaw to the Information and Public Relations Department with a ceremony at the Ministry of Information yesterday.
The donated items will be distributed to public libraries in district and township level IPRDs across the nation. The published materials are a collaboration between the Hluttaw offices and Hanns Seidel Foundation.
Deputy Director-General U Zaw Zaw Htike of the Pyithu Hluttaw Office handed over the published materials to IPRD Director-General U Ye Naing during the ceremony.
The donation aims to increase public literacy on Hluttaw matters and its inner working in the 325 townships that participated in the 2015 General Elections. At the same time, MoI is swiftly upgrading its IPRD libraries into community centres to promote public participation. —MNA
