SINGAPORE: A ministerial delegation from Myanmar will be in Singapore for a five—day study visit.

The delegation, which will be here from 3 December, will focus on industrial policies, industrial park development, as well as technical and vocational education and training.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) said on Sunday that the study visit is part of Singapore’s technical assistance to Myanmar, under the Singapore—Myanmar Technical Cooperation Programme.

It said Singapore is sharing its expertise and experience as part of the broader commitment to support Myanmar’s efforts in reforms.

Singapore also contributes in a concrete way to Myanmar’s development and the strengthening of bilateral ties.

The delegation is led by Union Minister in the President’s Office and Chairman of the Myanmar Investment Commission, Soe Thane.

It’ll call on Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong and will be hosted to dinner by Emeritus Senior Minister Goh Chok Tong.
