Speakers at the Business for Peace conference offered their perspectives on ethical business practices and sustainable entrepreneurship during yesterday’s Business for Peace (B4P) conference at Yangon University of Economic (YUE).
“We must make peace while doing business for national progress.” said Dr. Tin Myo Win at the talks held at the university. “Actually it’s the Business-for-Peace process. B4P highlights the national interest, rather than self-interest. We must especially assure safety, health, education and occupation for the displaced persons”.

UMFCCI is organizing B4P talks in regions and states to encourage regional business associations to participate in the peace process.
