It is necessary to take care of doing misconducts in issuing the CSC to non-citizenship persons, said Chairman of the State Administration Council Prime Minister Senior General Min Aung Hlaing at the coordination meeting on undertakings of the Union government at the meeting hall of the SAC Chairman Office yesterday morning.
In his speech, the Senior General said that Union-level organizations, ministries and local authorities at different levels are implementing the policies politically adopted by the SAC. Since its assumption, the SAC has been checking voter lists and it took deserved action against officials in causing the vote rigging process. Re-checking the voter list aimed to emerge the correct voter list. Currently, relevant organizations have scrutinized the necessities of the voter lists and the majority of the lists have been checked. Citizenship scrutiny cards are issued to all ethnic people and those who have the right of citizenship as quickly as possible. On the other hand, it is necessary to take care of misconduct in issuing the CSC to non-citizenship persons.
Although there are some 55 million of total population across the nation, some four million people are abroad. Hence, it is necessary to know the actual socio-economic status of the people. The Senior General pledged to implement the plan of the Ministry of Immigration and Population of the previous government to continue the enumeration of the census across the nation.
Upon completion, the number of populations can be secured as correctly as possible.
The government is directly responsible for the implementation of the economic objectives. The economic measures comprise agriculture and livestock farms related to small and medium-scale enterprises. At present, it is necessary to utilize the workable human resources and improve the capacity of the youths who will be a workforce in the future generations. Hence, it is necessary to encourage the education sector with the implementation of the KG+9 plan. Moreover, technologies will be taught at universities and colleges for the improvement of technologies.
The government is striving for creating chances for youths to have access to learning middle school education and above level. Depending on the qualification of the youths, it is necessary to turn out technicians capable of operating agriculture and livestock farms. As such, it is necessary to emphasize the businesses.
The Senior General urged all to focus on reopening schools in June 2023 and arranging for school-age children to go to school, adding that although the Constitution stipulates primary education as the compulsory one for all, the current government creates learning opportunities for students to pursue KG+9 education free of charge.
The number of district offices has been increased to be able to carry out administrative work efficiently. It is necessary for region and state chief ministers to supervise the running of newly-formed district offices. If district-level responsible personnel give close supervision for agriculture and livestock farming, education and health sectors, there will be more progress in these sectors. Arrangements are being made to be able to affiliate technical high schools and agriculture and livestock farming high schools with basic education high schools in 50 districts with a view to turning out required human resources for agriculture and livestock farming sectors.
Regarding food sufficiency, there is much we can do about it. The production of rice, beans and pulses, corn and oil crops is enough not only for local consumption but also for export. However, edible oil has to be imported because the yield of palm oil in the country is very low compared with that of other countries. If effective measures are taken for the cultivation and production of oil crops, it is expected that there will be sufficiency in edible oil and its import will be reduced in 2023. It is necessary to make sure that the production of edible oil in the Taninthayi Region is enough not only for itself but also for Mon State.
As regards the production of rice, there are 15 million acres of monsoon rice cultivation and three million acres of summer rice cultivation but it is found that it cannot meet the production target. If the production of monsoon rice can be increased from 75 to 80 baskets per acre and the production of summer rice from 90 to 95 baskets, there will be a total increase of 90 million baskets of rice, resulting in a rise in the national income. The government is also required to provide necessary agricultural inputs such as fertilizers, pesticides and irrigation water.
Touching on the energy sector, the Senior General said that the import of petroleum and petroleum products has to be reduced and systematic production of petroleum in some regions has to be made for the benefit of the country.
As electric power is vital to improving the socio-economic status of local people, electric power generation projects have to be implemented region-wise and measures have to be taken to make sure that electric power is generated through various ways and means.
Then, the Chairman of Nay Pyi Taw Council, chief ministers of regions and states reported on the work on administration, security, law and order, education and health being carried out in the respective areas and the Senior General gave necessary advice and instructions.—MNA
