The underlying message of green living is healthy living and need to be practiced by all and in homes and work places was well communicated. The show and competition were very effective mechanisms for increasing awareness on the many means for saving resources and the accompanying health, social, economic and ecological benefits.

The President stated that “this Forum is important and timely as it intends to cover measures needed to address the challenges and issues if we are to change current trend and bring about green economy into existence and the need for a fast transition towards low-carbon and clean energy, as internationally recognized and pursued by governments and private sector, as a major policy and strategy commitment that needs to be undertaken and implemented with urgency.” The transition pathways articulated include:

  • Encouraging and enabling new and renewable energy and setting targets for renewable energy use with time frames.
  • Increasing efficient use and conserving of energy, water, soil, biodiversity;
  • Changing behavior and practices in consumption, production patterns;
  • Fundamental conceptual change in considering wastes as a resource;
  • Creating Innovative economic incentives and financial mechanisms to support and encourage applications and innovations;
  • Promoting Human resource development and education for emerging opportunities

The Welcome Remarks by H.U Ohn Win, Union Minister, Ministry of Natural Resources and Environmental Conservation stated that the Fifth Forum reflects the Ministry’s determination and commitments made at all the past four Forums to lay down appropriate green growth strategies and actions for Myanmar. The Union Minister emphasized “With the objectives to promote green investments, managing brown investments ensuring sustainable finance and fostering human capital, MONREC is now developing a Green Economy Policy Framework”

The Lunch Special Keynote was briefly delivered by H.E U Kyaw Win, Union minister for Planning and Finance. The Minister had to attend an unexpected meeting. The Minister empathetically stated it was imperative for Myanmar to embark upon a green economy green growth trajectory to be competitive and responsive to convergence of major regional and global challenges. An increasing number of countries are already making this “greening” transition.

In the Keynote Speech, H.E Madam Wakako Hironaka commended Myanmar’s deep and vital interest to build a green economy. The Fifth GEGG Forum underscored that “Myanmar is aiming at a different path for their development, different from those which Japan and many other countries have gone through during the greater part of the 20th Century. Environmental damage, once done is hard to repair, especially on human health such as Minamata disease and Yokkaichi asthma have shown to the world.”

The Eminent Persons’ all commending H.E the President and H.E. MONREC Union Minister for their articulation of the imperative need for a fast transition toward green economy green growth and the actions needed. Their respective countries stand ready to cooperate with Myanmar.

The Opening Address was delivered by H.E U Phyo Min Thein, Chief Minister, Yangon Region Government. The Chief Minister recalling Yangon, the largest and commercially most important city, with the population envisaged to double in a generation time, must expeditiously embark upon a green economy green growth to address for example electricity needs, water supply, sanitation, wastes, air pollution, traffic congestion, public health. These are problems every major cities in the world face. Holistic and integrated policies and strategies are needed.
Organizing the Fifth GEGG Forum in cooperation with and at Yangon University is most appropriate. Education and training are critically important to meet the enormous human resource capacities needed in Myanmar.
