70th Conference Series (9)
Address of Prime Minister Ba Maw, Representative of Burma,
Given at The Greater East Asian Conference held on November 5, 1943

November 4, 2016

After a long interval, I would like to resume this series with Representative of Burma Prime Minister Ba Maw’s address to the Greater East Asian Conference.
He spoke enthusiastically:

“In the past, which now seems to be a very long time ago, it was inconceivable that the Asiatic peoples should meet together as we are meeting here today. Well, the impossible has happened. It has happened in a way which outstrips the boldest fantasy or dream of the boldest dreamer among us.
Today, an East Asiatic Assembly is sitting in the capital of East Asia. Thus, a new world has come into existence, a new order, a new citizenship. For the first time in history, the East-Asiatic peoples are meeting together as members of a free and equal brotherhood which is founded upon and consecrated to the truth that East Asia is one and indivisible.”
