Women’s Forum ASEAN 2014
5-6 December, 2014
Daw Aung San Suu Kyi ” i do not think we can take politics out of transition. .. Myanmar is not a poor country. If we are poor, it is because we have failed to make the best of our riches.”
Daw Aung San Suu Kyi ” women as a driving force in transition must know how to use our strength and know what our nation needs. It is not about how many women are in leadership position but about how effecfive we are , in all sectors. We must be engaged in politics to promote the process of transition. We must work towards building a mulity- party system and as women we must work twice as hard. It is not about what we can get but what we can give genuily, generously and with our eyes firmly fixed on our goal in order to build peace”.
