Union Information Minister U Maung Maung Ohn inaugurates the Community Centre in Taunggyi yesterday.

The opening ceremony of the community centre that was completed in Taunggyi, Shan State (south), was held yesterday morning. The Ministry of Information has been implementing establishment of community centres at the Information and Public Relations Departments (IPRD), in order to make them appear as familiar places for people to come in/out, for the people can seek knowledge and information, and hold discussions and consultations on matters of the region between communities and villages.
The building was opened by Union Minister U Maung Maung Ohn, Shan State Chief Minister Dr Kyaw Tun, and Commander of Eastern Command Maj-Gen Ni Lin Aung by pressing a button, and they took a photo together in front of the centre.
While addressing the ceremony, the Union minister said the centre will become a place for people to seek knowledge and skills as the centre is equipped with book shops, children’s reading room, mini museum, public library, meeting hall, computer room, training hall, gem and a multi-purpose hall.
He said the centre is the most suitable place for young people to meet, as well as a place where young leaders are turned out. As the youth network expands, the community expands, and the human resource will provide the development of the nation. He also expressed words of thanks to the Shan State Government, the relevant departments and donors.
At the ceremony, Union Minister U Maung Maung Ohn gave 500 units of MRTV DVB-T2 Set Top Box for the people of Shan State and 500 units to the families of the Eastern Command to be able to watch the programmes being broadcasted by the Myanma Radio and Television. The donations were accepted by the Shan State Chief Minister and the Commander.
Afterwards, the Union minister and party presented certificates of appreciation to the donors. In addition, the DTH channels for the Shan State Government were handed over by the Director-General of the Myanma Radio and Television to the Secretary of the Shan State Government, and the documents related to the community centre (Taunggyi) building were handed over to the Director-General of the Department of Information and Public Relations by the Myanmar Kyel Sin Lin Company. After the ceremony, the Union minister and attendees visited the community centre.
The newly opened community centre building was built by the BOT system in Shan State. It is a building opened in Taunggyi City, where people and students can get access to the information and technology, museum, and library, for free.— MNA
