Afterwards, Union Minister for Education Dr Myo Thein Gyi in a speech said that teaching students just to pass their examinations is not sufficient, as high-quality education and related capabilities are essential for solving global issues. Technology has allowed for significant and high potential outcomes, and the public has a high expectation for higher education standards, he said.
