Tree Ring Pen Gifted to Aung San Su Kyi
State Counsellor receives WWF-US Board Member and Country Director of WWF (Myanmar News Agency)
World Wildlife Fund Myanmar selected a Tree Ring Pen as a gift for Aung San Su Kyi because it is a good example of how to add value to forest products, as opposed to just exporting logs. Adding value to forest products can facilitate forest conservation and improve socio-economic conditions.
Daw Aung San Suu Kyi, State Counsellor and Union Minister for Foreign Affairs of the Republic of the Union of Myanmar received Mr. Matthew Carey Harris (WWF- US Board Member) accompanied by Dr. Amirtharaj Christy Williams, Country Director of the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) yesterday morning at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Nay Pyi Taw.
During the meeting, they exchanged views on matters relating to possible cooperation between Myanmar and the WWF in Myanmar’s environmental conservation measures including conservation of endangered species of animals and flowers, production of renewable energy, reforestation, recruiting human resources in the fields of environment and forestry, and promoting awareness of the people on environmental conservation.
