Bill Clinton visits Burma
14 November 2013: Former US President Bill Clinton makes his first trip to Burma, arriving in Rangoon yesterday.
The President is scheduled to speak at the Myanmar Peace Center (MPC) today, with about 100 people from political parties, civil society groups and media agencies.
MPC said that he would discuss the role of statesmen in politics and political transition.
Hillary Clinton, who had travelled to Burma in 2012 and 2013, indicated during her visits that the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) was interested in offering assistance for the development of the country.
The 67-year-old President is believed to talk about the works of CGI, a non-profit foundation he established in 2005 as an initiative of the Clinton Foundation.
According to media reports, he would be one of world’s leaders to be invited to witness the signing of Burma’s nationwide ceasefire provided that it is convened.#
