Myanmar is a republic in South-East Asia, bounded on the north by Tibet Autonomous Region of China; on the east by China, Laos, and Thailand; on the south by the Andaman Sea and the Bay of Bengal; and on the west by the Bay of Bengal, Bangladesh, and India. It is officially known as the Union of Myanmar.

Yangon  also known as Rangoon, literally: "End of Strife") is a former capital of Myanmar and the capital of Yangon Region. Yangon is the country's largest city and is the most important commercial centre, although the military government officially relocated the capital to Naypyidaw in March 2006. The city has the largest number of colonial buildings in the region today.

The Ministers' Building  formerly The Secretariat or Secretariat Building), was the home and administrative seat of British Burma, in downtown Yangon. Built in the late 1800s, the structure is more than 120 years old. Until 1972, the complex was called the Government Secretariat.
