Myanmar pearl production surpasses annual target, spurs job growth

The Myanmar Pearl Enterprise reports that pearl production has exceeded the annual target. Pearls are cultivated across 12 pearl culture camps in the Myeik archipelago of the Taninthayi region, owned by both public and private sectors.
U Myint Thu, General Manager of the Myanma Pearl Enterprise, stated that efforts are underway to surpass production targets in the 2022-2023 financial year. The target for this period is set at 699,500 momme of pearls. Between April and October 2022, a total of 792,298 pieces of pearls weighing 468,019.88 mommes were produced, representing approximately 67 per cent of the annual target.
Pearl farming relies more on manual labour than machinery, resulting in cost savings, environmental conservation, and the creation of numerous job opportunities. — TWA/MKKS
