Businesses and government officials are meeting on Monday to discuss ways to boost the economy and increase foreign direct investment.

President Maung Maungdaw and Prime Minister Aung San Suu Kyi said the meeting will be held at the government’s National Center for Economic and Trade Development (NCED) in Mandalay.

The meeting is the first since a series of protests that began in May to pressure the government to release hundreds of political prisoners, and has now spread to the entire country.

On Saturday, protesters held a rally in Yangon, where they set fire to vehicles, damaged several vehicles and smashed windows.

Police arrested more than 30 people on Sunday and arrested more protesters at a camp in the south of the country, where authorities have been attempting to contain the unrest.

The protests have caused the death of more than 10,000 people and displaced more than 5 million people, according to the United Nations.

The Myanmar government has not acknowledged the unrest and says it has taken necessary measures to combat the threat of terrorism.
