A coordination meeting to explain the status of the Ministry of Construction and the collaboration of all ministries to harmonize the COVID-19 rehabilitation process was held at 3 pm yesterday at the Assembly Hall of the ministry in line with COVID-19 directives.
At the meeting, the Union Minister discussed the projects being implemented with international loans.
“Projects under the local joint venture B.O.T system have not been halted due to the COVID-19 outbreak. It is difficult to control staff at project due to compliance with COVID-19 orders and directives,” the Union Minister said.
“It is also difficult to collect materials and contractors and local private B.O.T companies have been asked to extend the time due to delays in transporting machinery to the site.
“Requests from local private B.O.T companies are subject to the terms and conditions of the B.O.T contract and reviewed in detail and initially approved during the Ministry of Construction Management Committee meeting,” the Union Minister added.
Officials from the Yangon City Development Committee, Mandalay City Development Committee, and departmental officials discussed the rehabilitation process for the COVID-19 epidemic and the Union Minister asked for suggestions on the important issues.
Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Construction U Aung Myint Oo has also explained the work being carried out on the impact of the COVID-19 outbreak.
After that, officials from relevant ministries and development committees focused on recommendations for economic rehabilitation and further action on the COVID-19 epidemic with local joint ventures and the B.O.T system.
It is reported that the Union Minister coordinated all the necessary matters. — MNA
