Various projects of land utilization for cultivable lands, groups of factories, industrial zones, satellite towns, new farmlands, and watershed areas for sufficiency of drinking water must be implemented on priority for the improvement of socio-economy of the people to efficiently utilize the natural resources of the nation, said Chairman of the National Land Utilization Council Vice-Chairman of the State Administration Council Deputy Prime Minister Vice-Senior General Soe Win at the second meeting of the national land utilization council at the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environmental Conservation in Nay Pyi Taw yesterday afternoon.
Speaking on the occasion, the Vice-Senior General noted that Myanmar is facing many challenges in land utilization management with land disputes, needs for amending the existing laws and procedures, weakness and inharmonic processes of laws, a misunderstanding over the laws, need of accuracy for land sources and restricted procedures in coordination with relevant departments.
