The inauguration ceremony for Eindu-Kawkareik road, connecting Hpa-an District and Kawkareik District in Kayin State, was held yesterday morning in line with the COVID-19 guidelines.
The ceremony was attended by Union Minister for Construction U Shwe Lay, Chairman of the Kayin State Administration Council U Saw Myint Oo and members of the council, officials from the ministry and relevant departments/organizations and residents.
At the meeting, Union Minister U Shwe Lay said the Eindu-Kawkareik road is part of the Greater Mekong Sub-region East-West Economic Corridor and also part of the India-Myanmar-Thailand trilateral road.
Viet Nam, Laos and Thailand have completed their parts in the East-West Economic Corridor as Asian Highway Standard Class 2-level. Myanmar has just upgraded its parts of the road.
He said the upgraded Eindu-Kawkareik road would be a major trade route connecting with neighbouring Thailand. It would speed up the flow of goods and reduce transport costs for regional and international vehicles. As part of the project, upgrading Kyondoe port ring road will also benefit from transporting goods from Laos and Viet Nam to Mawlamyine in a short time at a low cost.
The upgraded Eindu-Kawkareik road to an international standard road (Asian Highway Standard Class 2) is 64.735 kilometres long and made of nylon asphalt (AC) type. — MNA
