Government to implement a special plan to grow trees in Chauk Township and along both sides of roads

Buildings must be constructed in Chauk Township to provide shelter to older persons and unhealthy people in times of severe climatic conditions.

Senior General Min Aung Hlaing remarked that residents have to plant trees in their residences and environments with water supply from the Ayeyawady River through water pumping projects.
Chairman of the State Administration Council Prime Minister Senior General Min Aung Hlaing, his wife Daw Kyu Kyu Hla and his entourage met departmental officials and town elders at the office of Chauk Township General Administration Department to talk about regional development tasks yesterday afternoon.
The Senior General heard reports from officials on arrangements for shelter for people in summer, more plans to build the shelters, requirements to grow trees to thrive in the dry area, and removal for settlers from the oil field.
Union ministers discussed plans to grow at least two acres of trees in each village, technical assistance from staff from relevant departments to nurture saplings, requirements of collaborative efforts of the government and residents to green the dry zones to prevent desertification and production of cooking oil and cotton in Chauk District.
In his discussions, the Senior General said that the Chauk region needs to prepare land as local farmers use a large area of croplands, adding that local farmers have to use humus and waste from livestock breeding farms as natural fertilizers.
He stressed that surplus meat, fish and eggs could be sold to the Bagan region and other regions where flocks of pilgrims visit to raise the socioeconomic life of the people.
The Senior General noted that it is necessary to successfully operate MSME businesses as the Chauk region has a fine tradition of an oil production industry.
In the education sector, the Senior General underlined that as MSME industries need qualified human resources, it is necessary to promote the education standard of the people in the Chauk region. Only when the number of educated people rises will the socioeconomic life of individuals improve, he added.
He urged local people to systematically manage their daily routine measures to ensure peace and stability in the region in addition to forging the rule of law.
He also stressed that if temples and Gandakuti chambers are built in the region, residents can take shelter in these buildings to evade the impacts of the hot season, and these buildings will become religious landmarks in the future. After the meeting, the Senior General cordially met departmental officials and town elders. — MNA/TTA
