The World Historic Cities Conference is jointly organized by The League Of Historical Cities-LHC with Andong City.
The LHC is an organization established since 1987 to create a picture of peace for future generations and to preserve and promote human heritage and historical cities.
Yangon is not only rich in ancient heritage, but also in terms of history and culture. As a member city of LHC, Yangon is invited to study and share government policies and preservation of Myanmar’s heritage and historical resources due to its unique colonial architecture and many of Southeast Asia’s urban heritage buildings.
The Myanmar delegation led by the mayor of Yangon was accompanied by U Nyan Lin Soe, head of the committee office of the YCDC, and U Lin Khaing, director of the engineering department (roads and bridges).—MNA
