to reach my immediate and long term goals

Dear friends,
pleas give me your feedback and thoughts on my essay.
Upon completion of one year master course in UK, my immediate career plan is to join back the company currently I am working for. Located strategically as a logistics hub, my country has been desperately in need of experts and transport policy makers who can have professional voice in the economic corridors currently implementing under Greater Mekong Subregion(GMS). With the international exposures and practices I am to acquire from my study in UK, I will expand my current network with enterprises in GMS members countries in logistics field and creat the business opportunities for our company.

When I return my country with the knowledge and strong academic background from UK,. I will set up a small think tank group with professionals from shipping and logistics field in Myanmar and will try to have a voice in the decision making process of government administrative as a private public engagement.

UK has been actively engaging in Infrastructure development and transport policy in Myanmar. I will participate as an independent advisory and consulting team to Transport related projects of UK Aid. I will be able to contribute in the area of road and rail infrastructure impact on the livelihood of people in terms of access to market from the logistics and commercial perspective.

My country opens up to market economy recently. There are very few people with strong academic root in supply chain teaching schools in Myanmar, which in turn can affect the quality of human resources urgently needed to fill in the workplace. Along with the foreign companies investment, sourcing materials globally and local experts in supply chain industry have been a challenging issue. Since teaching is my passion, I will spare some time for sharing knowledge. After two years of my return, I would have accumulated enough experience in logistics and supply chain industry. Then, I will join as a part time lecturer in Myanmar Maritime University and Myanmar Supply Chain College for Logistics Management courses.

After six years, I will have established well-organized consulting firm, giving services to both local and international companies. I will have collected enough data to do doctorate degree. As I love to keep pace with new technology development and its implication on the way we do things, particularly in supply chain industry. I plan to do doctorate in that field in my country context.

I strongly believe that the knowledge, network and international outlook I am to get from my one year study in UK will surely help me reach my immediate and long term goals in my country.

Ganesh, you didn't attach the essay prompt, so it is a little bit confusing to give necessary feedback for other who not familiar with this topic. But, let me try to give suggestion for you.

In my opinion, it is better to explain the field of organization you are currently working in as well as your role. Furthermore, you should give a more concrete explanations on how you will set up a small think tank and what kind of best practice project which you are about to make and can be used to advocate some policy to your government. Without such kind of real and concrete project planning your essay is less convincing. I hope you don't mind with my suggestion. Good luck!

Santoas, the essay is solid but lacks a clear discussion development as to how you will manage to become an independent advisor and consultant to UK Aid. This part of the essay, which is an integral part of the prompt requirement, needs to be better developed than this current presentation. What kind of benefit do you hope to provide to UK Aid and why would that be of particular benefit to your company and in essence, your country. How does everything add up towards the potential for a strong collaboration between your company and UK Aid? There needs to be a relevant connection between the course you completed, the projects of the UK in your country, and the development of your post study career goals. It is important that you connect the dots because you will be an influential Chevening scholar at that point and you will be expected to be able to assist in the development of your country with the help of the UK organization and your newly minted Chevening network. This is the time to present your final plans in a manner that will prove that Chevening should take a chance on your application and give you a scholarship grant.
