Rakhine State Advisory Commission chairman Kofi Annan presents his final report to President Htin Kyaw in Nay Pyi Taw on August 23.

Former United Nations secretary general Kofi Annan, who chairs the Rakhine State Advisory Commission, presented his final report on Rakhine State's issues to President Htin Kyaw at the Presidential Palace in Nay Pyi Taw on August 23.

The commission also held a press release in Yangon today (Thursday).

The final report covered conflict prevention, supplies of humanitarian aid, efforts to reconcile the two communities, the formation of organisations and long-term plans.

The Ghanian-born international diplomat also spoke to State Counsellor Aung San Suu Kyi at the Presidential Palace.

An interim report by the commission was submitted to the government in March.

Under the instructions of Suu Kyi, the commission was formed with six analysts from Myanmar and three foreign members last September. The commission was due to analyse poor regional development, violence and the refugee crisis.
