Tin Oo gave a welcoming speech in Rangoon Tuesday to participants who returned from a training workshop held from August 7 to 15 at the Sena Palace Hotel in Bangkok, according to the NLD Web site.

Overseas donors supported the political training trip for young Burmese. The 14 youth who took part flew to Thailand from Burma and returned to Rangoon when the workshop was completed. The classes were taught by foreigners.

As part of their political orientation, they visited the Thai Parliament and the headquarters of Thailand’s opposition Democratic Party.

The NLD has been active in offering education courses and holding meetings to establish networks for young people.
