Political Background Discussion with Thein Sein

Berlin, 3 September 2014

Thein Sein, President of Myanmar, met in Berlin with Members of the German Bundestag and selected experts to discuss current challenges in the country’s transformation process. He was accompanied by a high-ranking delegation of several Myanmar ministers. The main topics included Myanmar’s regional role, opportunities for economic modernization, perspectives for democratization, and the integration of ethnic minorities.

Körber Foundation regularly invites a small circle of high-ranking actors within Berlin’s foreign policy community to its Political Background Discussions. As in the Bergedorf Round Tables, the discussions take place shielded from the public, so as to enable a confidential, frank, and constructive exchange.
