The government manages the socio-economic development of the people by relying on taxes, said State Administration Council Chairman Commander-in-Chief of Defence Services Senior General Min Aung Hlaing at the 9/2021 meeting of the SAC Management Committee at the SAC Chairman’s Office in Nay Pyi Taw yesterday morning.
Speaking on the occasion, the Senior General said every government is responsible for restoring the peace and stability and development of the respective countries for the socio-economic development of the citizens. The previous meeting of the council arranged to change the financial year. Since the period the country regained the State’s independence, the government had calculated summer holidays of students, correction for answer papers and holidays of teachers. With regard to convening the Hluttaw, the government was formed in early March. The maincrop paddy of the country can be harvested at the end of the monsoon. So, agricultural products can be sold in the open season. After all, the State budget can be calculated correctly. Change of financial year in the term of previous government much-caused troubles in the businesses. So, the financial year will be re-changed starting from the 1 April similar to the past arrangements.
So, arrangements were made to reduce the substitute office holidays in amending the government holidays. The holidays were set during Myanmar’s Maha Thingyan festival period for the people to take relaxation.
GDP of the State comprises 21 per cent of the agriculture sector, so it is necessary to beef up the agriculture sector. Livestock and fish from the livestock sector must be produced as value-added products with the export purpose.
If tasks are undertaken to reduce the rate of electricity bill, setting of suitable labour charge and betterment of transport in railroads and motor roads to reduce the production costs, prices of commodities will decline. So, all need to cooperate in implementing the tasks mentioned above as electrification plays a key role in developing a country, electricity generation from renewable energy such as hydropower and solar power. Some people are working abroad due to lesser job opportunities at home. The operating of factories can create employments at home. It is necessary to encourage rural-based businesses for the improvement of life of the rural people.
The Senior General stressed the need to export advanced value-added livestock products using domestic beef, pork, chicken and marine products, which are the main products of the State. Likewise, encouragement must be given to the breeding of dairy cows to further export natural milk to foreign countries by effectively utilizing the allowed land plots and pasturelands.
Railways in good conditions will much benefit the State economy. Arrangements will be made for effective undertakings of transport tasks to develop the rural areas. Emphasis will be placed on the improvement of rural businesses and cooperative societies as well as small-scale enterprises.
When schools are opened, teachers are teaching students amidst difficulties due to the disturbance of CDM workers and anti-organizations. It is necessary to have a fair ratio of teachers to students at universities, colleges and basic education schools. Necessary teachers will be appointed. Arrangements are being made to present cash awards to teachers for their performances.
Union ministers discussed their respective sectors and sought approvals.
Next, the Senior General said that vehicles and motorcycles without licences broke security measures several times. Motorcycles involved in the events did not bear number plates based on CCTV documents. Yangon Region does not allow riding of motorcycles in the municipal area but outside the municipal area.
Illegal import of vehicles and motorcycles without licences causes much loss in levying the tax for the State and harming the rule of law. So, it is necessary to bar illegal import and export effectively. As there remain billions of kyat from electric meter bills, efforts must be made for collecting the bills at full capacity. Government manages socio-economic development of the people by relying on the taxes. So it is necessary to levy total charges of taxes.
Coordination will be made with relevant departments to reduce the appropriate tax rates for enabling the State to get income from tax and for the monetary circulation of the private sector. So, the tax rate to be reduced from 1 October to 31 March will be considered more. The best way is being sought for the local entrepreneurs, the government and the people. — MNA
