Amb. Thura U Thet Oo Maung of Embassy of the Republic of the Union of Myanmar in Korea  invited  key figures of the humanities and culture sector of Korea to his embassy on March 8 to  exchange views on  ways of promoting  bilateral  cooperation in the areas of culture at the time when the two countries mark  the 41st  anniversary of diplomatic ties .
Since the implementation of democratic reforms in 2011, Myanmar has attracted the attention of countries around the world seeking to capitalize on  its gradual economic opening, including South Korea.
 South Korea has doubled its development assistance, trade, and investment in the Southeast Asian country in less than five years, yet it still lags behind other major regional powers in these categories. While South Korea may not necessarily be able to overtake its larger competitors, it is uniquely positioned to leverage its economic standing to develop a broader and more strategic relationship with Myanmar.

   
 

Against this backdrop, more people here and Myanmar are demanding for increased people to people exchange programs in the cultural areas for better understanding of the two friendly countries.
More recently, the South Korean National Assembly suggested launching a "Korea-Myanmar forum," to promote high-level exchanges in the economic, social and education sectors.
Among those who joined the meeting included Mr. Im Joontaek, Mr.Park Ji-woo and Ms Min Ji-young to mention just a few.
Myanmar, which has stepped up efforts to modernize its administration, business and education systems, takes a keen interest in learning lesson from  Korea's experiences. years.
In this connection, Myanmar envoy expressed hopes to work  with the  Korean public and private sectors as it strives for economic prosperity and modernization.
He also accented importancce of  interaction between people of the two countries especially in the areas of education and culture in addition to economic sectors.

   
 

He noted that two countries  agreed on furthering language exchanges by compiling and distributing a Myanmar-Korean language dictionary.
 They also agreed to work together to produce bio-fertilizers and explore opportunities for providing education to a new generation of farmers in each other's countries.
 Korea and Myanmar have maintained a close partnership in various areas including economic and technological cooperation.
  In addition, based on a memorandum of understanding (MOU) signed by the labor ministers of both countries, workers from Myanmar are allowed to enter Korea under the Employment Permit System.

 Since 1991, the Korea International Cooperation Agency (KOICA) program has provided equipment and materials, development study and project aid, and technical training for Myanmar trainees in Korea.cials.
 Areas of culture, education and health are also seeing more exchanges under KOICA initiatives.

  Increased exchanges in high level visits will contribute to enhancing mutual understanding and cooperation in order to achieve all-around development of the bilateral ties.

   
 

 In the Myanmar-Korea cooperative activities, the private sector plays and important role in promoting trade and economic relations between the two countries, while official-level contacts provide necessary support to achieve successful results.
