This event presents two distinguished speakers with a profound understanding of the choices for both countries in the wake of the military takeover on 1 February.

U Khin Maung Soe, joining from Mandalay, is an expert on the Belt and Road Initiative and many other issues within the bilateral relationship.  He was the closing keynote speaker at the AMI conference in January 2020.

Prof Baogang He is the Alfred Deakin Professor  of International Relations at Deakin University in Melbourne.  He has a considerable history with Myanmar and its politics, and has drawn on this knowledge with AMI in the past, particularly as it relates to federalism in Myanmar’s future.

A question and answer session will be conducted after the presentation.

***NOTE: Zoom can work very well, but it poses difficulties for people with a poor internet connection. So, people from Myanmar (or elsewhere) who might have a poor internet connection or low bandwidth should turn off the video mode and listen to the seminar. You may be able to switch on the video from time to time just to see who is speaking, but definitely don’t use the video mode if you wish to speak yourself. You can also pose questions using the chat function. AMI will upload the whole seminar later on the AMI website and Facebook page. Photo credit: Google photos.
