Daw Aung San Suu Kyi welcomes Club de Madrid efforts in Myanmar

The Club de Madrid is undertaking its second high-level mission to Myanmar between 30 of May and 2 of June to identify potential work to support national efforts in Myanmar's transition to Democracy through the Project: "Accompanying Change, Fostering Democracy and Building Shared Societies in Myanmar". Club de Madrid Members Wim Kok, former Prime Minister of The Netherlands and President of the Club de Madrid, and Kjell Magne Bondevik, former Prime Minister of Norway, have met today with Daw Aung San Suu Kyi who welcomes Club de Madrid efforts to support the democratic transition in Myanmar.

The first High-level Mission to Myanmar -in February 2013- was intended to build trust among Burmese authorities, democratic movement, civil society, ethnic groups and other relevant stakeholders in order to identify a potential long-term initiative to provide Burmese leadership accompaniment, counsel and support in facing the daunting challenges of democratic transition, including the probable increased tensions as the country gets closer to the 2015 general elections.

The Club de Madrid assists in the identification of politically sustainable solutions to the challenges faced by today’s leaders, developing practical recommendations, action plans and implementation strategies. The direct exchanges with current leaders on a peer to peer basis, and the Member´s ability to deliver the right message at the right time are an essential part of its work and are the core of the Club de Madrid’s impact.
