With the assistance of the Japanese government, the establishment of a weather-radar station in Minbyin Village in Kyaukpyu in Rakhine State is expected to be finished by March, according to the Ministry of Transport.
The $12 million project was implemented in 2014. The organizing body has scheduled to install the weather equipment and instruments in August.
The station will help release updated storm and weather forecast news over the Bay of Bengal after connecting with the Multi-hazard Early Warning Center in Nay Pyi Taw, an official said.
To upgrade Myanmar’s weather forecast network, Japan also provided more than $20 million in assistance to establish two radar stations in Mayangon Township in Yangon and Chanmyathazi Township in the Mandalay region.
The Yangon weather station is expected to be completed by March 2016 and the Mandalay station by January 2017.
