Public Administration and Governance Training Programme for Myanmar Senior Government Officials

The Nanyang Centre for Public Administration (NCPA), in collaboration with Myanmar’s Ministry of National Planning and Economic Development and its Ministry of Foreign Affairs, had in November 2012 led a group of domain experts, including former Minister of National Development Mr Mah Bow Tan, to Nay Pyi Taw, Myanmar, to launch a new knowledge exchange programme. 

Thirty senior Myanmar officials participated in the inaugural programme

A group of 30 senior Myanmar officials selected by the Myanmar Central Government – including Deputy Minister for Border Affairs Maj-Gen Zaw Win, Deputy Director General for Ministry of Science and Technology Dr Saw Sanda Aye, and Deputy Director General for Ministry of Health, Dr Tin Tin Lay – participated in the inaugural programme.  

Over past two years, NCPA has also trained 120 senior officials from Vietnam with support from Singapore’s Temasek Foundation.  NCPA will be introducing more English courses and is looking for interested colleagues to teach in its degree programmes and short-term executive training programmes. 

Please contact Associate Professor Wu Wei, Director, NCPA, for details.
