2017 Events. Aid & Int Dev Forum ASIA SUMMIT

AIDF Asia 2017

Dear Charles,
The 3rd annual Aid & Development Asia Summit will take place on 14-15 June 2017 in Nay Pyi Taw, the capital city of Myanmar (Burma). Save the dates in your diary.
The 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.

Why Myanmar?

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.
