Myanmar Peace Centre to open this month

With support from the Peace Donor Support Group which comprises of Norway, the European Union and United Nations agencies, The Myanmar Peace Centre will officially open this month.

According to Union Minister U Aung Min, head of the government peace negotiating team, the centre will officially open on UWisara road in Yangon. An inauguration ceremony was held in July.

“The peace centre will be a place where everybody has the chance to loudly say what they think. There’s no need to go out on the road. We are trying to open it officially in October,” U Aung Min said.

The centre aims to provide technical support to the peacemaking process in Myanmar.

“It is a place where the government and ethnic group can hold discussions,” U Aung Min said.

“We need assistance from international donors for the peace-building process because our country is not rich.”
