General Manager of the Mechanical and Electrical Department at Myanmar Railways Aung Kyaw Naing highlighted the importance of cooperation and collaboration as essential steps for the development of railway transportation.

Subsequently, participants attended a lecture on China's National Conditions and Yunnan's Provincial Conditions by Zhu Rui from Yunnan University of Finance and Economics. They also visited the Post and Telecommunication training base at KRVTC's Yangfu campus, further enriching their understanding of the broader railway landscape.

Deputy Director of the Management Committee of Kunming Economic Development Zone Lin Zhigang viewed the training as a valuable opportunity to gain insights into the railway industry, not only in China but also on the international stage, with the potential to enhance global vocational education.
