Agriculture, livestock zones ensure meat and fish sufficiency in Yangon Region

Only when products from agriculture and livestock zones directly flow into people will the prices of commodities be low.

Senior General Min Aung Hlaing underlined that the Yangon Region emphasizes boosting the production of meat, fish, and seasonal crops in order to adjust to the high prices of commodities in supply and demand as the region is populous with many factories and industries.
Yesterday, Chairman of the State Administration Council Prime Minister Senior General Min Aung Hlaing inspected progress in the implementation of the Thilawa Multi-Agriculture and Livestock Zone Project of Myanmar Economic Corporation between Yangon River and Hmawun Creek in Kyauktan Township yesterday.
While in the project area, the Senior General stressed the need to efficiently utilize land plots in the zone, urging all to extend agriculture and livestock tasks, including raising layers and ducks with better livestock breeding techniques.
He continued that as efforts are being made to produce products from agriculture and livestock zones to flow into people directly for declining commodity prices, it is necessary to contact the Yangon City Development Committee and convenient shops of the military command headquarters.
The Senior General pointed out that if Myanmar produces products for local food security, it will have a plan to export frozen meat and fish to neighbouring countries and regional countries.
He continued that Myanmar has a firm market for the export of meat, fish, and agricultural produce due to the high demand from regional countries.
Chairman of MEC Lt-Gen Nyo Saw and officials reported on the implementation of the Shwe Pyi Agriculture and Livestock Zone, the functioning of the Thilawa Multi-Agriculture and Livestock Zone and 26th-mile Multi-Agriculture and Livestock Zone plans to distribute agricultural and livestock products to the market, production of feedstuffs at the livestock zones, and sales of dairy products.
The Senior General viewed samples of fish species being bred at the Thilawa Multi-Agriculture and Livestock Zone and eggs produced from relevant zones.
He inspected the fish hatching process at the livestock zone, duck farming and fish farming tasks at the Thilawa Multi-Agriculture and Livestock Zone and left instructions on the systematic process of livestock breeding tasks. — MNA/TTA
