State Administration Council Chairman Prime Minister Senior General Min Aung Hlaing speaks on the presentation event of the fisheries industry, fish farming and projects implementation in Myeik District of Taninthayi Region on 15 January 2022.

Marine products must be produced as value-added products at home for export purposes, said Chairman of the State Administration Council Prime Minister Senior General Min Aung Hlaing at the presentation on the fisheries industry, fish farming and implementation of projects in Myeik District of Taninthayi Region at the office of Myeik Corporation Public Co Ltd in Myeik yesterday afternoon.
First, Chairman of Taninthayi Region Fisheries Federation Chair of Myeik Corporation Public Co Ltd U Hla Than reported on border trade, running of industrial zones, development of Myeik region, construction of Htonkha-Thebyu-Mawtaung road, functioning of Mawtaung border, shrimp farming, trawlers and ongoing projects and Myeik International Fish Auction Market and Industrial Zone project in-charge U Han Htoo Aung on the plan to implement the project, Secretary of the Taninthayi Region Fisheries Federation U Thet Soe on offshore and onshore trawlers, installation of VMS, export of marine products, and project director U Aye Min Aung on the Myeik district project to be implemented by BBWI & MCPC Co Ltd in Taninthayi and Myeik townships.
In his response, the Senior General said priority must be given to the construction of the fish auction market. As Taninthayi Region is not sufficient in rice, farmlands should not be used for the projects. All businesspersons are urged to strive for increasing paddy per-acre yield in the Myeik region. If foodstuffs are sufficiently produced at home, import volume can be reduced and spending on foreign exchange as well.
Marine products must be produced as value-added products at home for export purposes. The government arranges to generate hydropower for sufficient electrification in Myeik. Efforts must be made for generating electricity through solar power.
Local businesspersons need to operate iron ore, coal and limestone production in addition to other industries without emphasizing the fishery alone. Businesspersons need to cooperate with authorities to increase the production rate of edible oil in the Taninthayi Region.
