Myanmar people have many opportunities to set up businesses based on natural resources such as rivers, creeks and fertile lands in order to create employment opportunities for the people.
Most of the people, accounting for some 70 per cent, are residing in the rural areas. They are engaged in agriculture and livestock breeding as their primary livelihoods. In addition to these businesses, ethnic national people manufacture traditional products such as sculpture, pots, furniture and traditional woven textile for earning family incomes.
In fact, the motherland Myanmar is teeming with small and large rivers and creeks such as Ayeyawady, Chindwin, Thanlwin, Sittoung, Laymyo and Kaladan rivers flowing from the north to the south in all regions and states. These rivers and creeks are primary sources for doing businesses of the local people. As such, the people undertake cultivation of various crops such as paddy, wheat, vegetables, jute and banana as well as perennial crops while operating farming animals and producing marine products with a great reliance on the rivers and creeks.
Only when the businesses of individual people improve, will it contribute much to development of the State economy. If local businesses increase the export volume, they will earn larger income.
At the same time, the people in the central Myanmar are focusing on cultivation of sesame, groundnut, potato, sunflower and other seasonal crops with the use of irrigated water from dams and reservoirs as well as river water pumping stations.
As such, it is necessary to consider how to improve businesses of the local people with the assistance of water sources which scatter all parts of the nation. Only when the businesses of individual people improve, will it contribute much to development of the State economy. If local businesses increase the export volume, they will earn larger income. If so, the government can levy commercial tax and income tax from businesspersons and allot such fund to the regions and states for development tasks.
That is why wealth of the people can raise the fund of the government. The worthy government can do better management over all sectors with proper plans how to improve the education qualification of the local people, how to develop the regional economy, how to provide aid to the health sector for better health care services for the people and how to broaden the horizon of the local people.
Hence, people need to choose the best livelihoods to benefit themselves and the State through the best ways.
