U Win Tin made an opening remark saying that a program to assist education of ethnic people is a very good idea originated from Daw Aung San Suu Kyi. It also needs a lot of money to realize that idea. It now comes into reality with the help of musicians and singers. He thanks them for that. He hopes people will also support that idea by participating in that event.
Committee Secretary U Phyo Min Thein explained the reason why it has to be moved to Myanmar Convention Center from Thuwunna Stadium. About 80 singers will participate in the concert. About 70 shops will be opened. NLD General Secretary Daw Aung San Suu Kyi will open the concert.
