The education budget support programme of the European Union (EU) in Myanmar was launched on March 21 in the capital city. The EU’s support will contribute to equal access to better quality education for all students in Myanmar with US$252 million (more than K380 billion).
At the ceremony, education minister U Myo Thein Gyi said the grant signals that the EU “shares our Government’s ambition to dramatically improve the education outcomes in Myanmar.”
The programme will assist the implementation of core reforms in the National Education Strategic Plan 2016-2021, focusing on equal access to better quality secondary education and TVET. It will support the efforts to modernise curricula, teaching methods and assessment systems in secondary education and TVET. It also aims at improving quality, transparency and accountability in the public finance management and budget oversight systems.
