Chin minister attends youth conference in Tedim
29 April 2015 — Nang Za Mung, State minister of Finance and Revenue, attended a youth conference titled ‘Unity and Holistic Development’ held in Tedim, Chin State from 23 to 26 April.
At the opening ceremony of the event, the Chin minister, of the ruling Union Solidarity and Development Party, read a message sent by Hung Ngai, chief minister of the Chin State government.
The four-day event, organized by the Zomi Community in Singapore in collaboration with the Zomi Youth Association in Tedim, drew participants from across Burma and other countries including India and Singapore.
Their discussions covered issues involving the development of the Zomi youth, and the need to forge closer communication between them in Burma.
A Tedim youth leader said: “It is great that we have the opportunity to meet like this. But this will make sense only if we go beyond the discussion and translate decisions into action.”
Meanwhile, 10 youths from Mizoram State invited to the event for teaching English were sent back to their country under the instruction of Chief Minister Hung Ngai.
During 13-17 April, Zomi doctors and nurses provided free medical treatment to 371 residents from Langzang and nearby villages as part of the meeting programmes held in Langzang, Tedim Township.#
