The Government is planning to establish the Department of Rehabilitation in order to effectively carry out the comeback of the displaced people in the country.
Union Minister for Social Welfare, Relief and Resettlement Dr. Win Myat Aye made the remark at the Amyotha Hluttaw yesterday in Nay Pyi Taw in his answer to a question raised by an MP, adding that the efforts of the new department would also be helpful for the peace-making in the country.
“The rehabilitation works would be carried out as projects,” said Union Minister Dr. Win Myat Aye, “the department would join hands with local authorities, private businessmen, state governments and the Union Government to bring about creating job opportunities and emerging of border trade zones.”
He replied the question asked by U Kyaw Ni Naing of Shan State Constituency-11 if the Union Government has a plan to aid the displaced people fled from their homes due to armed conflicts.
