In February 2013, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs invited the Peace Corps to establish a program in Myanmar. On November 11, 2014, President Obama announced during his visit to Myanmar the signing of a bilateral agreement between the United States and The Union of the Republic of Myanmar, making Myanmar the 141st country to host a Peace Corps program. American Peace Corps Volunteers partner with Myanmar people to strengthen local capacity, facilitate cultural exchange,  and  build  friendships that will last a lifetime. These bridges of friendship will further strengthen the relationship between Myanmar  and  the United States.
