With the aim of developing research in Myanmar and finding ways of re-establishing Myanmar research organisations, a paper reading session on Research Development was held at the assembly hall of the Printing and Publishing Department’s Central Press Building on Theinbyu Road in Yangon yesterday morning.
At the reading session, Union Minister for Information Dr. Pe Myint said this session was held under the title “Research Development.” The Union Minister noted that he had been attending many reading sessions since he was young, and considers research paper reading to be a place where knowledge is distributed. Attending such events results in obtaining knowledge, and much benefit is also gained from listening to discussions by other experts. It is priceless to listen to the assessments and discussions of experts, based on their thoughts, assumptions and expertise.
Paper reading sessions are also seen as allowing researchers to display their efforts before the people, and can be seen as sharing information among the public. When the writer of the paper reads and discusses his paper at the session, it is also very valuable. The discussion process that follows is seen as verifying whether the paper is well written or not, strong or weak, valuable or not. The reason why paper reading sessions are held is to develop the habit of reading papers after conducting research.
Another aim is for associations and experts, who are conducting the research work, he said. All are urged to make efforts for emergence of a research society which can meet the standard of the Burma Research Society existed in the past.
The paper reading session was chaired by National Literature Award Selection Committee member Dr. Aung Gyi (Mandalay University of Medicine) and Myanmar Historical Commission Vice-Chairman 2 Dr. Toe Hla. National Literature Award Selection Committee Vice-Chairman Dr. Khin Aye (Maung Khin Min-Danubyu) and U Zaw Aung (Development Researcher) read papers, titled “Research on religion and literature conducted in Myanmar” and “Suggestions on research development in Myanmar”, respectively.
The afternoon session was chaired by National Literature Award Selection Committee member U Aye Cho and National Literature Award Selection Committee Vice-Chairman Dr. Khin Aye (Maung Khin Min-Danubyu). Also, Dr. Kyaw Win (Retired History Professor), Myanmar Historical Commission Vice-Chairman 2 Dr. Toe Hla, Dr. Tin Hlaing (Bo Hlaing) and Myanmar Press Council members read papers titled, “The Judiciary in the King Mindon era as seen in Royal Orders” and “The Possibility of re-establishing Myanmar’s research organisation”.
The audiences raised questions and participated in the discussions that follow the readings.
After the paper reading session, Union Minister Dr. Pe Myint presented gifts to the Chairs of the paper reading session, as well as authors of the papers.
The paper reading session was attended by officials from the Ministry of Information, National Literature Award Selection Committee members, Myanmar Historical Commission, Myanmar affairs research group, Myanmar Press Council members, Myanmar arts and science expert group, rectors and professors of universities, authors of papers and interested persons.—MNA (Translated by Zaw Min)
