Central Supervisory Committee for Participation of Myanmar 
in International Trade Fair in South Africa meets

YANGON, 12 Aug- A meeting of the Central Supervisory Committee for 
Participation of Myanmar in In- ternationa1 Trade Fair in South Africa was 
held at the Tatmadaw Convention Centre on U Wisara Road this afternoon, 
attended by Secretary- l of the State Peace and Development Council Lt-Gen 
Khin Nyunt.

The Secretary- 1 said it is the first time for Myanmar to take part in a 
trade fair in an African nation, and despite the sparse relations and 
contacts between Myanmar and South Africa in the past, bilateral relations 
have been promoted after the establishment of diplomatic relations between 
the two countries.

The Secretary-1 said he had noticed there are mutual interests, trade 
prospects and possibilities of Myanmar's products to penetrate into the 
African market during his visit to South Africa to attend the inauguration 
ceremony of the newly-elected President of South Africa.

Thus, arrangements were made for participation of Myanmar in the 
International Trade Fair to be held in South Africa in October, and the 
arrangements are going well now, he said.

Through participating in the trade fair, African nations will know Myanmar 
and her products more, and that will promote relations between Myannar and 
African nations, he noted.

Therefore, the trade fair is important as it will open a new role for 
promotion of trade, communication and relations between Myanmar and African 
nations, he said.

The Secretary-l called on those, who will participate in the trade fair, to 
work in one mind as well as in unison.

Afterwards, Chairman of the Central Committee Minister Maj-Gen Kyaw Than 
reported on preparations for participation in the trade fairs, followed by a 
report of Chairman of Work Committee Deputy Minister Commander  Myo Tint on 
arrangements for it.

After the meeting, the Secretary-l inspected goods to be displayed at the 
trade  fair by Myanmar.
