The continuous flourishing of Myanmar’s traditional cultural performing arts will contribute to the moral development of youths in the right way, resulting in the improvement of national self-defence power, said Senior General Min Aung Hlaing.

The Senior General explained that fine arts are based on traditional culture and customs in nurturing the youths to have five criteria of physical, mental, moral, fraternal and economic strengths.
He prayed for all to further forge solidarity among the national brethren in the preservation of national cultural heritages and uplifting the prestige and integrity of the nation based on the fraternity of nationals.
The Senior General presented honorary awards to traditional dance troupes from Kachin, Kayah, Kayin, Chin, Mon, Rakhine and Shan states in addition to first, second and third as well as consolation prizes to winners in the Mahosadha drama contest and those for outstanding characters in the contest respectively.
