Myanmar and Brazil have reached an agreement on technical cooperation aiming to boost bilateral cooperation in the sector.
The agreement was signed by the Minister for Science and Technology Ko Ko Oo and Brazilian Ambassador Jose Carlos in Nay Pyi Taw on Tuesday last week.
Ko Ko Oo said the signing would further cement the friendly ties between the two peoples, and vowed to effectively implement the agreement which can contribute to higher socioeconomic status of the two countries.
Carlos said Brazilian experts would soon come to Myanmar to coordinate for the cooperation.
Myanmar and Brazil will also cooperate to develop the Southeast Asian nation’s tourism sector, eyeing hotel investment and opening liaison offices for travel agents and tourists.
In February 2012, as part of bilateral cooperation, Myanmar and Brazil signed a memorandum of understanding on establishing a mechanism for political consultations between the two countries.
