Luis CdeBaca, Washington’s spokesperson on human trafficking and Derek Mitchell, US coordinator for policy on Myanmar made a visit to Naypyidaw last Monday and they are the latest top US representatives to hold significant meeting with the ministers of the new nominally-civilian government. Topics about human trafficking will be included in their discussion.
They were encouraged to pay a visit to Myanmar following the visit made by no other than the US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton last year in which she stated that Myanmar is moving towards a significant and more progressive nation in advocating more reforms for the country, as reported by Agence Frence-Presse.
Mitchell will make his way to Bagan in central Myanmar to evaluate microfinance and other development projects, it said.
Since President Thein Sein has exerted efforts for the implementation of reforms in Myanmar, high profile officials and personalities of different nations has been visiting the country and other countries are considering to take also a visit in that place.
Among the reforms made by the new nominally civilian government was the release of several prisoners. But the government failed with the expectations of other people including international countries that he will be releasing all political prisoners who have been jailed for over a long period of years.
With the inclusion of democracy icon SuuKyi and her party to run for the coming election is another reform considered to further the changes in Myanmar.
William Hague, Britain’s foreign secretary made a remarkable visit just last week and met with President Thein Sein and SuuKyi.
With his trip to Myanmar, US billionaire investor George Soros declared just last week that he will be putting up an official base for his charitable and humanitarian works in Myanmar.
