Two Rakhine State ministers and department officials inspected the development works underway in Maungtaw Township yesterday.
U Aung Kyaw Zan, the Rakhine State Minister for Electricity, Industry and Transportation, and U Kyaw Lwin, the Rakhine State Minister for Agriculture, Livestock, Forestry and Mines, were the two ministers who led the group in their inspection of a project to upgrade Angumaw-Maungtaw Road. The project is supported by Asia World Foundation and is led by U Aung Sein, the project engineer.
The ministers listened to the project engineer’s presentation on the project’s progress and then offered advice.
Asia World Foundation is a member of the infrastructure team, which is one of nine task forces under the Union Enterprise for Humanitarian Assistance, Resettlement and Development (UEHRD) in Rakhine. The road upgrading project began in November 2017. The road is 49.6 miles long and measures 18 feet wide and is 9 inches high. A team of 1,500 workers and 200 machines work two shifts a day on the project. The ministers and entourage also visited the batching plant where the concrete cement for the road is produced.
The group then travelled to Myinlut Village to inspect the clearance of the land and went on to Kinchaung Village to inspect the ARG rice husk grinding process. The group then travelled to Hla Poe Kaung Camp to meet with internally displaced persons (IDPs). A camp official gave a tour of the construction of 159 small buildings that can house 6 individuals each. The official explained that in one week, the camp will be ready to house about 8,000 individuals. Minister U Aung Kyaw Zan then gave guidance on setting up an electric grid and building roads for the camp.—Aung Ye Thwin, Ko Min
