The National Unity Government, alongside allied revolutionary forces, has consistently strived to end all tyranny, including the military dictatorship and to form a federal democratic union that ensures peace, freedom, justice, and eguality as envisioned since its formation three years ago in April 2021. A report on achievements within the last three years has been shared on April 16, 2024 through all our communication channels. The achievements and progress were also presented to the Committee Representing Pyidaungsu Hluttaw (CRPH) at their 6th Union Parliament meeting held on February 1 and 2. 2024 and to the National Unity Consultative Council (NUCC) at the second People’s Assembly from April 4 to 9, 2024.

A significant stride has been made in solidifying our shared political goals and objectives by fostering collaboration and implementing agreed-upon measures among all stakeholders and revolutionary forces. A joint position statement with allied organizations was published on January 31,2024, and the shared agreement on objectives, aims, and positions in this endeavour was made public..

Foreign  Affairs
Regarding foreign affairs, every effort has been made to garner international attention and recognition for the revolutionary process against the dictatorship, uniting all forces while concurrently delegitimizing and halting support to the military council. Every possible avenue is pursued to engage with neighboring and regional countries, ASEAN, the EU, as well as international bodies including the United Nations, various parliaments. The collaborative work with civil society organisations, international community and Myanmar diaspora and activists around the world has enabled NUG to claim justice for the brutal crimes committed by the military council and to impose economic and diplomatic sanctions. The international aid organizations are called upon to support the revolution and the people in displaced areas.

The People’s Defense Force, established on May 5, 2021, is envisaged to become the federal army in the future. Over the past three years, the PDF has been meticulously formed, trained, and actively engaged in frontline combat alongside ethnic forces, culminating in the execution of strategic offensives. For better coordinated and strategic military efforts, the Central Coordination Committee (C3C and the Joint Coordination Committee (J2C) was formed in partnership with allied ethnic revolutionary forces. At present, the revolutionary forces and NUG have gained control over 60% of the country, including five border towns, and have conducted synchronized attacks on strategic military council’s locations, including Nay Pyi Daw, Pyin Oo Lwin, and their weapon production facilities.

The National Unity Govemment has established the People’s Administration Teams and People’s Security Teams. These administrative and judicial teams are being assembled to mitigate power vacuums in controlled areas, while NUG ministries strive to provide essential public services. The Federal and State Coordination Commission (FSCC) has also been formed to enhance the coordination with federal state administrations.

The finance sector’s motto being ‘Cut the income of the fascist military, build the treasure of the Public,’ it underscores our commitment to reducing the financial resources of the military council while consistently raising funds for the revolution. The Ministry of Planning, Finance, and Investment has undertaken various projects, including:

  1. The Spring Lottery, which contributed over 111.7 million US Dollars to the Civil Disobedience Movement from August 2021 to December 2023.
  2. Generating a total tax revenue exceeding 23 million US Dollars from NUG controlled 42 townships in 2023 alone.
  3. Issuance of Special Bonds from December 2021 to December 2023, resulting in over 44 million US Dollars.
  4. Implementation of the End of Dictatorship/Early Partnership Scheme until December 2023.
  5. raising over 97 million US Dollars.
  6. Establishment of the Spring Development Bank with a funding of 11.8 million US Dollars.

Introduction of the NUG Pay system, circulating 300 million US Dollars in support of the revolution was successfully established.

rurthermore, we are continuously explorng alternative avenues to generate smooth and sustainable revenue from the public, while ensuring accountability in administering tax revenue from controlled areas.

Public Services
NUG is actively engaging with the public through independent media outlets, as well as our websites, TV, radio, and social media platforms, through which regular updated news, governance, and the progress of the revolution are provided.

The National Unity Government is committed to assessing the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and challenges encountered over the past three years in implementing necessary changes. We pledge to work together with all revolutionary forces to achieve an ultimate victory and to end the revolution that the people long for.

The military council is now at its lowest point and on the brink of collapse. We call upon everyone to unite and utilize all available resources to bring an end to this fascist military dictatorship through coordinated and collaborative efforts.
