Rakhine National Conference to be held in Kyaukphyu

Rakhine National Conference will be held in Kyaukphyu Town, Rakhine State for five days from April 27 to May 1, for the sake of Rakhine national unity, according to official sources.

"At the conference, we will read research papers and discuss about the issues such as setting a national day," said Zaw Aye Maung, an organizing committee member for the conference, also Rakhine affairs minister for Yangon Region.

Representatives from blacklisted organizations and individuals in exile will also join the conference, according to the organizing committee members. They also added that they have reached an agreement with the Union Peace Making Committee for the representatives to be able to take part in it.

It will be mainly sponsored from funds donated by Rakhine people, said Khine Thuka, a committee member who is also the general secretary of Rakhine Liberation Party.

The conference will discuss six research papers in issues such as ethnic unity, equality, peaceful survival of Rakhine State, national security, economy, education and healthcare.
Zaw Aye Maung also added that a working committee will be established for implementation of the decisions reached during the conference.

Other ethnic conferences such as Mon National Conference and Chin National Conference were already held in the hope that they could gather facts and data to submit to a big national conference like Pinlon in the future.
