Summary of News

1. The Union Prime Minister says that most of the funds will be spent in the military sector

At the Finance Commission meeting (3/2023) held on June 6, Union Prime Minister Mahn Winn Khaing Thann stated: “Due to the natural state of the finances, it is very important to be able to allocate and manage them efficiently according to priority sectors without any waste. It is true that as the revolution drags on, it becomes more difficult on all sides. Most of the funds received are spent on the military sector, so it is really tight for other sectors to share the remaining funds, but we will still have to continue to focus on the military sector. This is because it is also the sector that will exert the greatest amount of force to end our revolution as soon as possible.”

The Ministry of Defence (NUG) is now working not only to provide food expenses but also to arm the battalions that completed the registration procedure and received IDs.
