Economy and peace are related to each other and only peace can help in the development of the Union, said Union Minister for Ethnic Affairs Nai Thet Lwin.
A workshop to promote peace through a Public Private Partnership (PPP) was held at the National Reconciliation and Peace Centre in Yangon yesterday afternoon.
At the workshop, Union Minister for Ethnic Affairs Nai Thet Lwin, Vice Chairman of the Arakan Liberation Party U Khaing Soe Naing and UMFCCI President U Zaw Min Win delivered the opening speeches.
Next, member of the Peace Commission Prof. Dr Aung Tun Thet explained the aim of holding the workshop and also discussed the B4P and PPP arrangements.
Later, Union Minister Nai Thet Lwin said that Myanmar is rich in natural resources and is located in a comparably good geographical location. He also discussed the requirements of peace and human resources, without which it would be difficult for the Union to become well-developed.
Following this, member of the Union Peace Commission Prof. Dr Aung Tun Thet said that political discussions are essential in a peace process. He also spoke about groups that had signed the NCA, establishing companies, doing business in their peaceful region and tasting the fruits of peace.
He added that PPP programmes are part of the business programmes for peace, and peace and development are related to each other and cannot be separated. Slow or no development will create more crises and the Union Peace Commission is thus implementing the B4P plan, he said.
Later, Chairman of the PaO National Liberation Organisation Khun Myint Tun said that the six EAOs-PNLO, CNF, ALP, ABSDF, DKBA and KNU/KNLA (PC) are engaged to cooperate in doing business and the workshop is aimed at setting up future plans and a practical way to fulfill their regions’ socioeconomic development, along with establishing a Democratic Federal Union with the cooperation of the communities of the regions.
Next, Deputy Director General of the Directorate of Investment and Company Administration (DICA) discussed a topic titled, ‘The role of DICA’ and Dr. Aung Tun Thet conducted a concluding review.
