Greetings from Ambassador His Excellency U Aye Khaing
Welcome to our Embassy’s website and best wishes for the year 2014.
The year 2014 will be exciting year for Myanmar as Myanmar takes the rotating chair of ASEAN for the first time after joining ASEAN in 17 years. Political, economic and administrative reforms in Myanmar since 2011 have made it possible for Myanmar to play a more active role in regional and international affairs. Myanmar will faithfully implement the responsibilities of ASEAN Chair in accordance with the Article 31 and 32 of the ASEAN Charter.
Myanmar has set the theme for 2014 ASEAN Chair as “Moving Forward in Unity to a Peaceful and Prosperous Community”. The solidarity of ASEAN is the first and foremost ingredient for ASEAN to be credible in the world and to be fully integrated into a community. The ultimate goal of ASEAN is to reach to a peaceful and prosperous community where ASEAN will be outward looking, playing a leading role in emerging regional architecture and contributing to the healthy development of global community, people-centred, caring and socially responsible, economically dynamic, sustainable and resilient, maintaining peace, stability and harmony. Myanmar’s chairmanship of ASEAN aims to add value to these ASEAN objectives and dynamics.
Myanmar is a new and emerging tourist destination in South East Asia. Known to most travellers as the Golden land, Myanmar is rich in cultures and natural attractions. There are numerous pagodas, temples, beauty spots, archaeological sites, snow-peaked mountains, deep forests with abundant flora and fauna, rivers and natural lakes, unspoilt beaches and archipelagos, 135 national races with their colourful costumes and customs, traditional arts and crafts all make up Myanmar the most exotic and fascinating destination in Asia. Visitors will find Myanmar a beautiful and peaceful place with the most hospitable people in the world. High potential for rapid growth and development along with its natural resources, abundant labour force and strategic locations and gradually embracing wide-raging reforms in Myanmar brought tremendous amount of foreign investments into Myanmar recently.
