Two new mem­bers added to NLD Eco­nomic Com­mit­tee htin­lyn­naung@mm­times.com

THE Eco­nomic Com­mit­tee for the Na­tional League for Democ­racy (NLD) gov­ern­ment has re­cruited two ad­di­tional mem­bers. They are eco­nomic ex­pert Dr. Aung Ko Ko and Cer­ti­fied Pub­lic Ac­coun­tant U Win Tin.

The ap­point­ments, which are ex­pected to re­in­force the NLD Eco­nomic Com­mit­tee, come shortly af­ter State Coun­sel­lor Daw Aung Sang Suu Kyi said she would take a di­rect and ac­tive role in han­dling state eco­nomic af­fairs.

The two new ap­pointees were added un­der a res­o­lu­tion set at the Cen­tral Ex­ec­u­tive Com­mit­tee meet­ing on Au­gust 20. They will fill three cur­rent va­can­cies, one com­mit­tee mem­ber said.

The po­si­tions were made va­cant when U Bo Bo Nge, a for­mer mem­ber of the NLD Eco­nomic Com­mit­tee, was ap­pointed as Vice Gov­er­nor of the Cen­tral Bank of Myan­mar, while U Htay Win, an­other for­mer mem­ber, was ap­pointed as the Aye­yarwady Re­gional Min­is­ter for Plan­ning and Fi­nance. The third mem­ber has passed away, com­mit­tee mem­ber U Ye Min Oo said.

“Dr. Aung Ko Ko is well-versed in eco­nomic devel­op­ment and has been in­volved in dis­cus­sions with lo­cal and in­ter­na­tional ex­perts. Mean­while, U Win Tin is an ac­coun­tant who knows about fi­nan­cial mat­ters and statis­tics and has also worked in the Au­di­tor’s Gen­eral Of­fice.

State Coun­sel­lor Daw Aung Sang Suu Kyi is strength­en­ing her eco­nomic team as she gets more in­volved in the coun­try’s eco­nomic af­fairs.
