SAMUT SAKHON, 30 May 2012  – Visiting Myanmar democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi greeted Burmese workers in Samut Sakhon Province, amidst large crowds of onlookers and the media.


Crowds gave loud cheers when Ms Suu Kyi arrived at Mahachai Villa in Muang District, Samut Sakhon, where a large number of Myanmar migrant workers reside in.

The National League for Democracy (NLD) Leader said she is happy to see Burmese brothers and sisters. She added that she never forgets fellow Burmese who work in Thailand and will discuss with the Burmese government about the problems they are facing here to improve their living conditions.

The 66-year-old Nobel Laureate asked the migrant workers to be patient and put full efforts to work. She promised to help improve Myanmar so that everyone can return to the country and bring back the knowledge learned from Thailand for use in developing the nation further.

Ms Suu Kyi will give a speech on Friday at the World Economic Forum on East Asia in Bangkok. She will return to Myanmar on June 3.
