Suu Kyi meets Soros

THURSDAY, January 12, 2017

Myanmar minister for foreign affairs Aung San Suu Kyi held talks with a delegation led by George Soros, chairman of Soros Fund Management, Wednesday.

According to the ministry's Facebook post, they discussed tax collection, budget drafting, gem mining and exploration, the rehabilitation of drug addicts and reducing the danger of drugs and how to provide technical assistance. 

During her tour to the US last year, Suu Kyi held talks with Soros, the Hungarian-American business magnate, investor, philanthropist, political activist and author with an estimated net worth of US$24.9 billion, according to Forbes. 

Soros, a founder of the Open Society Foundation, has made frequent visits to Myanmar and donated billions from 1979 to 2011.
