Road Safety Panel report
Following months of work with Myanmar’s Union and Regional Government, and research trips to Yangon, Bago, Nay Pyi Taw, and Mandalay, the Suu Foundation’s High Level Panel for Road Safety have completed their report, which provides over 40 recommendations for Government officials to reduce the number of people killed on Myanmar’s roads.
The Report was presented to State Counsellor Daw Aung San Suu Kyi, as well as the Union Ministers of Transport & Communications, and Construction by Suu Foundation Chair Jean Todt. It was also discussed at the National Road Safety Council meeting in May 2017, chaired by Vice President U Henry Van Thio.
The Report is available to download here in English and Myanmar.
The Suu Foundation is committed to supporting the Government of Myanmar with the implementation of our report. We will be providing ongoing road safety expertise, support the Ministry of Transport with the adoption of UN Regulations 14, 16, 22, 94 and 95 on Vehicle Safety, provide capacity development for members of the Ministries of Construction and Transport, and expand our work with the Myanmar Traffic Police.
And we hope that other international and local organisations will join us in implementing this authoritative strategy for improving the safety of Myanmar’s roads. There is a lot to be done, and we will need to work together to support the Government make good on its road safety targets.
