  • To catch up with advancing technologies, it is necessary to study changing military science and technology in the world and to make best use of them.
  • As the Tatmadaw is mainly responsible for safeguarding the sovereignty of the country, it must be a consolidated army instilled with combat capability and power in order posses three capabilities.
  • While discharging the State’s responsibility, the Tatmadaw is required to carry out tasks for the stability of the socio-economic lives of the people, unity and development of the country to the best of its ability.
