At the meeting, Union Minister U Tin Htut Oo discussed that the implementations have been made to develop Myanmar’s commercial coffee production in the region and expand the coffee cultivation, naturally grown in the shade, not only for economic profit but also for conservation of the environment as well as climate change around the PyinOoLwin area since 2002.
In addition, Union Minister U Tin Htut Oo stressed that the field surveys were carried out jointly with related departments to inspect the use of residential buildings and other industries in the areas where coffee is allowed to be grown under the existing laws. The private entrepreneurs who have acquired agricultural lands need to cooperate with the departments concerned as per the principles and rules set by relevant departments when implementing the PyinOoLwin Coffee Project and then the project must be implemented to be successful based on the findings of field surveys, he added.
Then, Union Minister U Khin Maung Yi underlined that coffee growers in the forest area of PyinOoLwin Coffee Project will be monitored to follow the policy and rules of the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environmental Conservation.
