• The Union Government has been placing special emphasis on the national reconciliation and peace process with a view to finding a solution for political problems through political means through negotiations and holding the Union Peace Conference—21st Century Panglong. In doing so, the Union Government is spending the public funds systematically. In spending public funds for the peace process, the Union Government is specifically putting great stress not only on compliance with financial rules and regulations but also to be effective and beneficial.
• To ensure that success is achieved in a smooth manner, in performing the wide ranging tasks of the Peace Process, it is very important that the needed funds are acquired, that these funds are allocated equitably, and that they have been used effectively in a beneficial manner. As the International community is also providing assistance, the Joint Coordinating Body for Peace Process Funding — JCB) was formed on 20 December 2016, chaired by Daw Aung San Suu Kyi, State Counsellor with a view to allocating these funds systematically.
