YANGON, June 21 (Xinhua) -- Myanmar and Denmark have renewed a letter of intent for another four years on capacity building for workplace safety inspection and health system inspection, Myanmar News Agency reported Thursday.

The extended letter of intent was signed between the Myanmar Ministry of Labor, Immigration and Population, and the Ministry of Employment of Denmark in Nay Pyi Taw on Wednesday.

Under the letter of intent, Myanmar personnel will be theoretically and practically taught by experts from the Danish Working Environment Authority.

Myanmar and Denmark had signed the letter of intent in 2015 for a three-year term which will expire in June.

The two countries have been launching strategic cooperation since 2015 on a series of issues, including investment, humanitarian aid for the rehabilitation in conflict-hit Rakhine state and technical assistance to Myanmar in agriculture and livestock farming.

The Danish government also granted debt relief for Myanmar.

The Danish assistance to Myanmar totalled more than 12 million U.S. dollars annually.
