In response to the official invitation to attend a national level Workshop on Reforming Economic Development, which is to be held in Nay Pyi Taw for three days beginning from this afternoon, democracy icon Aung San Suu Kyi left for Nay Pyi Taw by government car this morning.

This will be her first visit to Nay Pyi Taw, the administrative capital of the government, ever since she was released from six years detention on November 13 last year.

Since this workshop will be attended by officials of the current government headed by President U Thein Sein, Aung San Suu Kyi will be meeting President U Thein Sein for the first time.

After inaugurating this three-day workshop, President Thein Sein is expected to hold crucial talks with Aung San Suu Kyi regarding his government’s latest initiative for achieving peace with ethnic armed organizations, with which Myanmar military is engaged in armed conflicts.

Thein Sein government yesterday evening issued a peace overture to these ethnic armed organizations inviting them to hold peace talks with the government as the current armed clashes with them have become the biggest stumbling block for the government in its pursuit of developing national economy.

It appears that Thein Sein government is trying to enlistAung San Suu Kyi’s help in bringing these ethnic armed organizations to the negotiating table.

According to NLD sources, on her trip to Nay Pyi Taw by government car Aung San Suu Kyi was accompanied by her personal assistant Daw Su Su Lwin ( daughter of NLD CEC member U Lwin ) and her chief security officer U Khun Thar Myint.

The three-day national level Workshop on Reforming Economic Development will be held in the Myanmar International Convention Centre in Nay Pyi Taw.

Three representatives from each of the 37 political parties that had contested in the 2010 election have been invited to the workshop. Quite a number of well known businessmen from each of the 14 states or regions have also been invited to attend.
