Engineers play an important role in strengthening of physical aspects of an army such as weapons, ammunitions, vehicles, armour and military equipment, Commander-in-Chief of Defence Services Senior General Min Aung Hlaing said at the graduation ceremony of the 17th Intake of the Defence Services Technological Academy in PyinOoLwin on Friday.
Also present at the graduation ceremony were Commander-in-Chief (Navy) Admiral Thura Thet Swe, Commander-in-Chief (Air) General Khin Aung Myint, senior military officers from the Office of the Commander-in-Chief (Army), Commander of the Central Command Maj-Gen Soe Htut and families and relatives of the graduating cadets. Senior General Min Aung Hlaing took the salute of the engineer cadets and inspected their regiment before presenting prizes to outstanding graduates including Cadet Aung Zin Oo, who won the best cadet award.
The senior general said in a speech that Myanmar citizens are exerting all-out efforts to catch up with other countries in the development of science and technology. He urged the cadets to constantly study modern technologies to build a modern army and to produce and maintain weapons, war planes and warships locally without relying on other countries by conducting research and development tasks.
He also urged them to be careful of media attacks and cyber warfare as the former causes loss of trust in its victims and the latter leads to chaos in government mechanisms and unexpected losses.
In conclusion, the senior general urged the cadets to apply what they have learned not only for the defence services but also for the nation. After a graduation parade, he met with three outstanding cadets and their parents and praised them for their efforts. He then viewed round the Science and Technology Exhibition 2014 of the DSTA.
In the evening, the senior general and his wife, along with the officers and their wives, attended a graduation dinner and greeted the cadets warmly one by one. They then enjoyed dinner with the cadets and their families.—Myawady
