Union Minister Dr Pe Myint and officials discuss ways to organize political literature reading.

A COORDINATION meeting took place at the Printing and Publishing Department in Yangon yesterday to discuss ways to organise a political literature reading.
At the meeting, Information Union Minister Dr Pe Myint urged officials to invite resourceful people to the event, describing it as the first of its kind.
“Literary festivals have hardly ever touched on the questions of politics in our country, despite an abundance of political literature,” he said.
The paper reading session will be held in conjunction with a monsoon literary festival, with the union minister calling for collective efforts to be made to make sure the event goes smoothly.
Political researcher U Ko Ko Hlaing spoke in support of the event, suggesting that the meeting focus on deciding the number of papers to be read and the categories of topics to be discussed.
“If political literature thrives, it will help people broaden their political horizons.”
The literary festival will be held in the compound of the Printing and Publishing Department on Theinbyu road in Yangon for three days in late July and is expected to draw the participation of some 100 book shops.
