Singapore and Myanmar enjoy good bilateral relations and cooperate closely within ASEAN. Myanmar is among the top 10 recipient countries under the Singapore Cooperation Programme (SCP). Under the Initiative for ASEAN Integration (IAI), Singapore established the Myanmar-Singapore Training Centre (MSTC) in Yangon in 2001 to train Myanmar officials. Singapore was also one of the first countries to offer assistance to Myanmar following Cyclone Nargis in 2008. Singapore contributed an initial US$200,000 in humanitarian aid, followed by another US$5 million for various humanitarian projects, including donations of airport ground handling equipment, fertiliser and fishing boats, and the construction of tubewells and a station hospital. During President Thein Sein's State Visit to Singapore in January 2012, a Memorandum of Understanding on the Singapore-Myanmar Technical Cooperation Programme was signed between the Governments of Singapore and Myanmar. Under the Technical Cooperation Programme, Singapore will share its developmental experiences and provide training to Myanmar in three key areas, namely economic development, human resource development, and public administration.
