In Myanmar, the National League for Democracy (NLD), led by Ms. Aung San Suu Kyi, swept the country’s parliamentary by-elections, and she also won a seat, attracting attention from around the globe. Now that Myanmar has taken a large step forward towards democracy, it is expected that the country will also move forward with economic development. Dean Kenji Ino of the School of Regional Development at the University of Kitakyushu was invited to this seminar. Having worked as an expert researcher at the Myanmar Embassy of Japan in the latter half of the 1980s, he is renowned in the research community as an authority on Myanmar. He showed an invaluable film to explain the actual situation he himself had witnessed in the country, and also talked about Ms. Aung San Suu Kyi.
