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
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.
