President Tony Tan Keng Yam on first state visit to Myanmar, marks deepening ties

PRESIDENT Tony Tan Keng Yam will arrive in Myanmar tomorrow (Mon) on a state visit that is a first by Singapore since both countries established diplomatic ties in 1966. The five-day visit is at the invitation of Myanmar President U Thein Sein. It marks the deepening ties between Singapore and Myanmar since the reform-minded former general assumed his position in 2011. President Tan's first official stop will be at Myanmar's capital Naypyidaw, where he will receive a ceremonial welcome. He will call on and be hosted to a state banquet by President Thein Sein, said the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) on Sunday (Mar 31). He will also meet the Speaker of the Lower House of Parliament Thura U Shwe Mann and democracy icon Daw Aung San Suu Kyi, leader of the National League of Democracy, the main opposition party.
