Journalists from local and international media groups arrived in Sittway Township via Myanmar National Airline yesterday at noon.
The media group met with people living in Thet Kel Pyin Camp and asked and gathered news about the resettlement programs, their living condition, education and health.
Thet Kel Pyin Camp was established in 2012 and currently has 100 households and about 6,000 people living there.
The media group included journalists from Yomiuri Shimbun, MIR, Mizzima Weekly, Channel 4 News, Swiss TV, MRTV, MITV and MNA.
Since the incident in October 2016, media groups have been allowed access to Rakhine State once in 2016, eight times in 2017, and seventeen times in 2018, making a total of twenty-six visits.
The Committee for Implementation of the Recommendations on Rakhine State has planned for conducting two guided media trips per month within 2018.—Aung Ye Thwin
