The opening ceremony of Myanmar Disaster Response Team Training Course No 2/2021 was held yesterday morning at M-Gallery Hotel in Nay Pyi Taw.
In her address, Union Minister for Social Welfare, Relief and Resettlement Dr Thet Thet Khine said that if the disaster management is carried out by just one country or one organization, it would be far from the goal, and so cooperation is encouraged. The current training course is a result of cooperation with ASEAN. There is ASEAN-ERAT at the ASEAN level and there should be an emergency response team locally.
The ministry is also working with ASEAN Secretariat and AHA Centre to conduct the Human Resource Development Project for Humanitarian Assistance for Myanmar and organizing the Myanmar Disaster Response Team and conducting training courses are the priorities among the procedures of the project.
The Union minister then talked about new subjects to be added in the syllabus to improve the local capabilities and stainable development of socio-economy, disaster-related activities of Myanmar disaster response team and improvement of an individual trainee.
Deputy minister U Aung Tun Khine also highlighted the supportive facts of training to be conducted in the respective regions and proper cooperation as mid-level ministry staff who operate disaster management and representatives who serve humanitarian assistance join the training.
A total of 42 trainees joined the six-day training which will end on 18 December. — MNA
