A representative of the Knesset flew to Myanmar (formerly Burma) over the weekend to help the Southeast Asian country's parliament advance itself technologically. At the request of the International Parliamentary Union, the Knesset's senior technological specialist Avi Marom joined a team from parliaments around the world in Myanmar for a week.
"I will do my best to help the country professionally any way I can," Marom said. "It is important to try to help them use this opportunity to skip a generation and immediately adopt new technological innovations."
