A new industrial park under development in Ngazun Township, part of a dry zone in Mandalay Region, is forecast to create job opportunities for some 200,000 people upon completion.
The Mandalay Region Hluttaw approved construction of the Myotha Industrial Park, which will incorporate 200-foot wide roads and the Hsimeekhon port, in its fifth regular session.
The Mandalay Region government has given K2 million per acre to farmland owners who lost their land plots in construction areas. Moreover, the region government has also given K500,000 per acre for farmers to cultivate crops on vacant and virgin lands. In addition, the government allotted them 60×80 foot land plots.
On 4 March, Mandalay Region Minister for Electric Power and Industry U Kyaw Myint made an inspection tour of construction tasks at the industrial park. In meeting with Chairman of the construction committee U Aung Win Khaing and township officials, the minister outlined construction of a rural road in Letpankwin Village, electrification in Aingtha Village and building two sub-power stations in Kokke and Ngamya villages.–Min Htet Aung (Mandalay Sub-printing House)
