Mr San Nay Thway – Second Secretary, Ministry of Foreign Affairs Myanmar
Ms Kayla Wong – Assistant Editor, Mothership.sg
Googling “Myanmar” recently would bring up search results of news on the political developments of the country – where Aung San Suu Kyi, a Nobel Laureate almost synonymous with democracy and human rights of Myanmar, and other leaders of the National Leader for Democracy (NLD) were detained as the military seized power on 1 February and declared a state of emergency for a year. The military intervention prompted civil disobedience, street protests and violence, all of which are escalating.
As a Singaporean youth, what are you concerned about with regard to Myanmar’s development, political and/or otherwise? This webinar will dive into a young Burmese’s perspective on the fast-moving and build situation, and also discuss the Singapore conversation regarding Myanmar.
The post-webinar notes for this event will be released on this page soon.
This webinar was brought to you by the National Youth Council (NYC) and the Singapore Institute of International Affairs (SIIA).
