On 22 October 2013, MMN organized a meeting with the Civil Society Organisations in Myanmar at MiCasa Hotel in Yangon, Myanmar. It was attended by 17 representatives from 10 CSOs in Myanmar. The objectives of the meeting were to introduce MMN and its activities; to exchange information, ideas and experiences about labour and migration; and to identify key issues for the network’s activities in Myanmar
At this meeting, a brief history of MMN, its activities, and achievements since MMN was launched ten years ago were presented to the participants. A section on critical analysis of opportunities and challenges or obstacles arising from the changing political, legal, economic, social and technological landscapes in Myanmar was an important part of the meeting agenda. Mr. Htoo Chit (former MMN Steering Committee member) also joined the meeting and shared his experience as a former SC member and an active member of MMN. The section on how to become a member of MMN was the last agenda of the meeting. Following this meeting, several local CSOs expressed their interest in MMN’s work and indicated that they will formally apply for the MMN membership in the near future.
