Burma heritage gets govt funding

Burmese urban planners could get a government-funded trip to Australia as part of a new exchange plan, Foreign Minister Bob Carr says.

On his three-day visit to the troubled South-East Asian nation Senator Carr announced Australia would help preserve the heritage buildings and streetscapes of former capital Rangoon.

The government will fund specialist resources for the Yangon Heritage Trust and establish an exchange program for urban planners.

They would meet Australian heritage experts, urban planners and architects and learn about best-practice restoration and innovative reuse of heritage buildings.

As well, Senator Carr offered to fund the secondment of an Australian expert to help the heritage trust’s work.
