Union Minister for Ethnic Affairs Nai Thet Lwin attended the coordination meeting of the setting up the ongoing process for the development of the National Races Village (Yangon) in the meeting hall of the National Races Village in Yangon yesterday.
The meeting was also attended by Deputy Minister U Hla Maw Oo, states/regions ethnic affairs ministers, chairmen and members of self-administered zones, the permanent secretary, directors-general, chairmen and members of the Myanmar Ethnic Entrepreneurs’ Association and departmental heads.
In his opening remarks at the meeting, Union Minister Nai Thet Lwin said that the National Races Village (Yangon) was established with the aim of strengthening the union spirits and enhancing the ethnic solidarity by studying the culture and customs of the ethnic races dwelling in Myanmar through the history of
Myanmar.
Moreover, leaders of the government asked to make the public known about the arrangement of constructing recreation centres for children, men, women and senior citizens in addition to the Persons with Disabilities and the blind. Moreover, considerable emphasis had been placed on fostering the union spirits rather than making money. That’s why; the upgrading of the master plan could help assist the original purposes.
As the National Races Village becomes the symbol of all ethnic races, this is the place where traditional culture and customs can be showcased not only in Myanmar but also around the world. If we could display the musical instruments of the ethnic races in details in the village, on the other hand, we could preserve the traditions and culture of the races while creating new travel itineraries for the tourism industry as well. The minister also added that the states/regions ethnic affairs ministers, groups of the self-administered zones, partnerships of the Myanmar Ethnic Entrepreneurs’ Association, states/regions literature and cultural associations played a key role in bringing about the preservation and development processes, and urging them to make cooperation.
The Union Minister said that arrangements were being made to extend the displays of the ethnic races from the self-administered regions in addition to the displays of eight ethnic races and the Salon race in the National Races Village. It was also needed to exhibit with the use of modern technologies. All the attendees were urged to make sound suggestions with a view to becoming a recreation centre and tourist destination.
Next, Deputy Minister U Hla Maw Oo clarified the ongoing process of the development of the National Races Village. Furthermore, states/regions ethnic affairs ministers, chairmen of self-administered zones and invited guests took part in the discussion on the development of the National Races Village (Yangon).
Following this, the Union Minister delivered a closing speech following the clarifications made by the deputy minister about the discussion. After the ceremony, states/regions ethnic affairs ministers, chairmen of self-administered zones, members and invited guests made an observation tour around the National Races Village (Yangon). — MNA (Translated by Win Ko Ko Aung)
