Myanmar is "100 percent" ready for the Southeast Asian Games, a senior official said Friday, as the clock ticked down to the biggest sports event in the nation's troubled history.
In a major test of Myanmar's infrastructure and organisation, thousands of athletes, officials, media and visitors will descend for the 22-day multi-sport event starting on Sunday.
"We are 100 percent ready to hold the SEA Games," sports ministry director Htay Aung told AFP.
"We are ready now. We held the final rehearsal of opening ceremony yesterday," he added.
