Commercial Attachés have been sent to foreign trading partners since 2012, and this will be the fourth time, he said.
He said it is necessary for commercial attachés to focus on trade and investment promotion. A total of 38 officials from related ministries will attend the training and qualified candidates will be carefully selected. The Head of the State also relies on commercial attachés as frontline fighters for the economic development of the country, the Union Minister continued.
The training plans to deliver subjects that must be known as a commercial attaché, and he urged the trainees to learn with interest and try to be ready to serve by connecting with current commercial attachés’ experience and information.
He ordered them to study the lectures diligently as ways to export a variety of products for the development of the country’s exports, compliance with standards, finding new markets and export market expansion, negotiation and trade law procedures with other countries must be studied and applied in practice.

Myanmar has sent a total of 4 commercial attachés to China, a major trading partner of the country. As Commercial Attachés sent to China were able to coordinate with the General Administration of Customs of the People’s Republic of China to export Myanmar’s agriculture products, fishery products, fruits, cows and buffalos to China, which has greatly benefited the country. He also urged trainees to focus on the subjects delivered during the course.
