BECAUSE OF TODAY, YOU CAN EXPECT GREATER THINGS TOMORROW
Dear Professionals in Myanmar,
On behalf of the Professionals in Singapore, it gives me great pleasure to invite you to participate in PDC2017@Yangon.
In March this year, I came to Yangon for the first time on a business trip organised by the Ngee Ann Polytechnic, an institution of higher learning in Singapore. The trip was sponsored by International Enterprise Singapore, a statutory board under the Ministry of Trade and Industry of the Singapore Government that promotes international trade.
I witnessed, first hand, the economy of Myanmar developing at 6%, one of the fastest growing in ASEAN. In meetings with Singapore companies and Multinationals operating in Myanmar as well as some of Myanmar’s Top 200 companies and Government Agencies, the key people spoke of the difficulty in finding and keeping local staff with the right skills, knowledge and experience.
Upon returning to Singapore, I shared this with my fellow Professionals. Since independence in 1965, Singapore has gone through the same journey of economic transformation that Myanmar is now going through. We benefited from Professionals from the developed world who shared with us their management, finance and technical skills. In the process, our education system was also transformed to one that is world class. Today, it is our turn to share these skills and knowledge with you.
The Professional Development Conference 2017 to be held at Sule Shangri-la Hotel from 26 to 29 Sep, is a gathering of Professionals from Singapore with the goal of addressing Myanmar’s talent shortage by leveraging our skills, knowledge and experience.
With your support, we look forward to hosting this inaugural event to equip the management staff in Myanmar so that you can train your own staff and take your economy to the next level.

Dear Fellow Professionals in Myanmar,
It gives me great pleasure to invite you to participate in this inaugural PDC2017@Yangon event.
Myanmar is where it all started for me. Upon graduation from Yangon Technological University in 2001 with a Bachelor of Engineering in Electrical Power, I ventured overseas seeking better, cleaner and greener energy for South East Asia. Along the way, I have also picked up valuable Management, Finance and Technical skills.
After working for 16 years, I am committed to do something for my home country. In partnership with the Professionals from Singapore, I would like to bring such skills back to Myanmar as a contribution to our nation’s technological, economical and social growth.
The Professional Development Conference 2017 to be held at Sule Shangri-la Hotel from 26 to 29 Sep, has four tracks covering Management, Finance, Technical and Education skills.
There are two parts to the Conference. The first two days, 26 & 27 Sep, are set aside for each of the speakers to share, in an hour, what skills, knowledge and experience they can offer to help you decide what workshops to sign up on the third and fourth day, 28 & 29 Sep.
Don’t miss this opportunity to invest in your future! You will be the direct beneficiaries of this huge effort to mobilize the Professionals from Singapore to transfer their skills, knowledge and experience via this Conference. We look forward to your enthusiastic participation so that together we can help take our nation’s economy to the next level.
