Two regional summits hosted by Myanmar concluded Tuesday, with state leaders and foreign ministers from neighbouring Southeast Asian nations vowing to increase cooperation in economics and a range of other sectors.
The 7th Cambodia- Laos- Myanmar-Vietnam (CLMV) Summit and the 6th Ayeyawady-Chao Phraya-Mekong Economic Cooperation Strategy (ACMECS) Meeting, involving the CLMV nations and Thailand, were held Monday and
Tuesday, respectively.
Union Minister U Wunna Maung Lwin, the vice chairman of the committee on organizing summits, said Myanmar proposed establishment of a Mekong regional university in Kengtung, eastern Shan State, with the leaders of member countries agreeing to the proposal.
He said the university could help promote cooperation in the economic and cultural sectors among the countries as it will be located in a border town which has easy land and air access to regional countries.
The union minister said the details of plan will be discussed among member countries, with no specific timeline set.
