Myanmar People Forum prepares for ASEAN conference

The Myanmar People Forum Working Group, the committee in charge of organizing the ASEAN People’s Forum (APF), is scheduled to hold their Myanmar People Forum from 28 to 30 October.

The group is extending invitations to over 350 civil societies, U Kyaw Lin Oo, a spokesperson from the Forum Organizing Committee’s secretary’s office, told Mizzima.

The Myanmar People Forum will include twelve to sixteen workshops that will focus on major issues such as human rights, social development, democracy, and peace.

The Myanmar People Forum Working Group was founded in October 2011 as a vehicle to prepare for the ASEAN Civil Society Conference/ASEAN People’s Forum (ACSC/APF). It has also been used as an organizational beacon for NGOs and civil society groups all over the country.

The Myanmar People Forum is specifically designed to focus on provisions for and the advancement of the APF.

The results of the Forum will be discussed with the civil societies in attendance at the APF, said U Aung Myo Min, Director General of Equality Myanmar.

In October of this year Brunei will officially cede chairmanship of ASEAN to Myanmar for 2014.
