At the meetings, the Senior General said that the primary duty of the Tatmadaw is to defend the State, so it is necessary to take training to have high military, organizing and administrative capabilities. All Tatmadaw members need to abide by prescribed orders, directives and policies. They all need to maintain the good military discipline as a fine tradition of the Tatmadaw.

All Tatmadaw members join the Tatmadaw to serve the State defence duties of their own accord. Hence, they all need to improve themselves to be good soldiers with loving the Tatmadaw as well as build their units, regiments and the Tatmadaw with loving the State.

Being Tatmadaw members, they all must serve the duty as assigned duties. They have to dutifully serve the assignments under the orders. Likewise, those from the offices need to correctly carry out office works.

Good behaviours of Tatmadaw members in individuals need to uplift the prestige of the Tatmadaw.

The Tatmadaw gives welfare to the Tatmadaw members for their convenience. Relevant military units also give welfare to them. The Tatmadaw members need to emphasize self-control in indulgence for avoiding too much spending of money and they have to adjust their income and expenditure.

They have to participate in the unit-owned agriculture and livestock farming tasks for having success and individually manageable scale agricultural and livestock farming tasks as well. Commanders need to fulfil the needs of Tatmadaw members and families of their respective regiments and units under their control in line with entitlement and welfare ways.

They have to manage all affairs for the Tatmadaw members and families through commander spirit and family spirit. The subordinates must strictly abide by the prescribed rules and regulations with self-control activities.

They all need to avoid drinking and indulgence which can harm their life and take a practice of systematic spending of income so as to improve their lives with a conscience.

With regard to education, all the Tatmadaw members need to read literature and encourage offspring to improve their educational qualifications.

The Tatmadaw spends the fund on the enhancement of educational qualification of families of the Tatmadaw members. Only when they serve the duty to enable all children to learn in their assigned regions can they leave educational heritage to their offspring. Likewise, they all practically do organizational tasks outside the military units to be one with the people.

The Senior General presented foodstuff for officers, other ranks and families to the commander of Naval Region Command and wife. The Senior General then cordially greeted officers, other ranks and families.
