Dear Rectors, Presidents, Principals, Directors and Heads,

Greetings from MLI!

Myanmar Leadership Institute Debating Society inaugurates its first debate on 13 and 14 March 2020. MLI debating society is instituted mainly to provide a significant training ground for the development of students’ communicative abilities. It will also provide opportunities for young students and professionals to practice and share their skills and create learning situations in which they develop proficiencies based on sound contextual theories and life experiences.

I am sure it will generate effective critical thinking among the youth on primary issues that affect the Myanmar Society by meeting and interacting with like-minded individuals and groups in the context of a social and intellectual activity. It will broaden international horizons and strengthen sensibility of important issues including but not limited to politics, economics, education and employment, culture, gender, environmental protection, religion and social welfare. By conducting such debates, MLI believes it can cultivate in the youth of Myanmar a more open mind-set ready to accept different viewpoints and a better critical mind and brilliant ability to communicate with others effectively.

May I therefore request you to encourage as many as students/employees as possible to participate in this debating competition to be held at MLI on 13 and 14 March 2020.

I remain,
Gratefully yours

M.S. Jacob SJ
