At the event, Union Minister for Information Dr. Pe Myint said that this kind of cooperation can help exchange of technology and experience between the two institutions and Myanmar audiences can enjoy variety of programs on MRTV.

We will continue to try hard to present more good Chinese TV series to Myanmar viewers through joint cooperation.”
TV series will offer insight into Chinese literature, culture and society to the Myanmar audience, official from MRTV said.

We believe…Myanmar audience will study more about the history of China, their literature, ideas and thinking, their culture and society through this TV series. Moreover, it can foster deeper understanding and closer friendship between people of both countries.”
