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.
