The Burma Roundtable Conference paved the way for Burma's separation from India, the 1935 constitution, and the semi-elected governments of 1937-42.

The Saopha of Hsenwi was there in an advisory role to the the Saophas of Hsipaw and Yawnghwe. The Burma delegation included about two dozen other prominent political figures, including U Chit Hlaing, U Tun Aung Gyaw, U Maung Gyee, Dr Thein Maung, Saw Sydney Loo-Nee, and Miss May Oung (Daw Mya Sein).
