I believe that the people will remain at home to mitigate the chances of spreading the virus: VP U Henry Van Thio
I would first like to wish all of you auspiciousness and prosperity on the occasion of the auspicious New Year.
There are twelve seasonal festivals in Myanmar culture and the welcoming of the New Year during the Thingyan celebrations is the most enjoyable and most prominent festival of them all.
It is a deeply held belief that the Thingyan festival is the time when we wash away the negativity from the previous year. However, because of the COVID-19 pandemic, which affected all countries including Myanmar, we have not been able to celebrate the Thingyan festival this year.
However, I believe that the people will remain at home to mitigate the chances of spreading the virus and symbolically wash away the old year’s negativity in their minds, as they welcome the New Year.
Take lessons from the experiences of the past year, prevent the spread of COVID-19 by resolutely making individual efforts through understanding and strong will, and warmly welcome in the Myanmar New Year of 1382 ME.
During the auspicious time of the New Year, I extend good wishes for the socioeconomic development of all ethnic national brothers and sisters; may you all be able to work strenuously and in unity for the formation of the democratic federal republic and national development; may you all be able to overcome difficulties and hardships successfully; may you all be safeguarded from calamities and be blessed with good health and happiness. (Translated by Zaw Htet Oo)
I urge all citizens to adhere to health directives and regulations issued by the Union Government:
Pyithu Hluttaw Speaker
Dear esteemed citizens of Myanmar, Greetings! May you have good health, prosperity and be free from all dangers during the New Year.
Our Hluttaw is tasked with reviewing, amending, repealing and enacting laws to benefit the nation and its citizens, in addition to safeguarding their human rights and socioeconomic livelihoods.

I urge all citizens to adhere to health directives and regulations issued by the Union Government and may you all be safe from all dangers. (Translated by Zaw Htet Oo)
‘Everyone has individual responsibility’ and keep the Union spirit: Amyotha Hluttaw Speaker
May all ethnic nationals and citizens in Myanmar and Myanmar nationals overseas be blessed with good health and prosperity and be safe from all dangers.
As the old year gives way to the new year, may all the challenges and hardships serve as lessons to be learnt and be prepared for better results and be filled with new strengths, thoughts and vision moving forward.
