Aid & Development Asia Summit will bring together regional and
global expertise to discuss innovations and partnerships for aid and
development programmes in Asia, with a particular focus on Myanmar. The
Summit will offer an unparalleled opportunity for knowledge exchange,
cross-sector engagement and collaboration between UN, government
agencies, local and international NGOs, Red Cross, development banks,
investors, associations, media and the private sector.
Following the success
of previous summits on innovations and partnerships in humanitarian aid
and development in South East Asia held at the UN Conference Centre in
Bangkok, the AIDF audience has stated interest in moving the event to
Myanmar in 2017.
Myanmar is the
largest country in mainland Southeast Asia and is undergoing a profound
transformation, emerging from more than 50 years of military rule,
centralised control, and internal conflict.
