Myanmar Parliamentary Delegation Visits Korea for Capacity Building

Seoul, Korea

November 12-19, 2016

From November 12 to 19, The Asia Foundation Korea office organized a study tour in Korea on the development of parliament for a delegation of 15 participants consisting of newly-elected members of the Myanmar Parliament, staff of the Parliamentary Secretariat and NGOs from Myanmar. The study tour, generously supported by the Korea Development Institute School of Public Policy and Management (KDI School), drew upon Korea’s experience and practices on parliamentary development.


The Foundation organized a series of lectures and briefings for the delegation on the development of Korea’s political and parliamentary systems, which included visits to the National Assembly and meetings with monitoring NGOs and think tanks, all of whom play a vibrant role in Korea’s parliamentary development.
