The Central Farmland Management Committee yesterday morning held its 33rd meeting via videoconferencing. The meeting was attended by Central Farmland Management Committee Chairperson Union Minister for Agriculture, Livestock and Irrigation Dr Aung Thu, the committee’s Vice-Chairperson Deputy Minister U Hla Kyaw, and members including the Permanent Secretary and the Directors-General.
During the meeting, Department of Agriculture Land Management and Statistics Director-General U Thet Naing Oo, in his capacity as Secretary of the committee, announced the subjects to be discussed in the meeting. Then, the participants make discussions.
Union Minister Dr Aung Thu said that 33 meetings could be held in the five years of the term of the current government. He added that the meeting was held to discuss how to efficiently handle some cases submitted to the Central Farmland Management Committee. The Union Minister said that various subjects including matters on plan to give compensations to the original owners of confiscated lands should be discussed.
The Union Minister pointed out that if the amounts of compensations for confiscated lands are smaller than the fair amount, the original land owners who will have to give up their lands will suffer disadvantages and if the amounts for compensations are larger than the fair amount, the country will suffer financial losses. So, the calculation of the amounts needs to be made properly and fairly. The meeting decided that more than K 2 billion will be given to original land owners as compensation for confiscated lands, and crops.—MNA (Translated by Maung Maung Swe)
