State Administration Council Chairman Prime Minister Senior General Min Aung Hlaing addresses the meeting with the Yangon Region Government and departmental personnel at the Yangon City Hall yesterday.

As Yangon City stood as the capital of the country from the post-independence era to 2006, all works could be done smoothly, said Chairman of the State Administration Council Prime Minister Senior General Min Aung Hlaing yesterday morning at the meeting with members of Yangon Region government and departmental personnel at the City Hall of Yangon.
The Chief Minister of Yangon Region reported on social, economic, health and regional development tasks in the region, levying of tax and spending, efforts for the development of the industrial sector, the opening of COVID treatment centres, supply of electricity and water, efforts for the production of domestic products as import substitute ones and Yangon City Mayor U Bo Htay on the sanitation of the city and proper flow of water in drains, and traffic rules enforcement.
The Union ministers discussed industrial development measures, economic development for rural people, issuance of citizenship scrutiny cards under the Pan Khinn project, efforts to avoid the outages of electricity, promotion of the national health sector and sports sector.
In his address, the Senior General said that the general election is important in a democracy. Hence, it is necessary to issue CSC and ensure the correctness of household registration and population for all the people to cast votes in the coming multiparty democracy general election. Efforts must be made for the issuance of CSC to the local people in the Yangon Region.
In his address, the Senior General said Yangon Region is inhabited by more than 7.8 million of population, accounting for nearly 15 per cent of the country population. Among more than 7.8 million population, there are some 2.5 million rural people. Yangon is top in the country for the situation of learning. As Yangon City stood as the capital of the country from the post-independence era to 2006, all works could be done smoothly. As it has sound foundations, officials need to further improve the city.
Although the infection rate of COVID-19 which remarkably broke out in the third wave declines to the lowest level, it is necessary to maintain the rate. The decline of the infection rate in the Yangon Region is based on the cooperation of the people. It is necessary to shape the city as a green city and a clean city by removing the garbage and growing trees. Beautifying the environment will contribute clean environs and fresh air to the health condition of the people. People need to take physical exercises to have health and fitness. As such, Yangon City will be a green city, clean city and fair city as well as a smart city based on technology only when the city reduces non-product elements.
Labour plans are being implemented in the regions and states to narrow the development gap between the rural and urban areas. If so, the problems of squatters can be solved. Solving the squatter problems can support the city beautifying tasks. Proper ways and means must be sought from solar power of renewable energy to be generated electrify. On the other hand, electricity must be systematically used. If the people use LED bulbs which can save electricity, they can save the consumption of electricity, benefitting the State.
Tatmadaw agriculture and livestock farm zones in Yangon Region continuously produce vegetables, meat, fish and eggs as food supplies for the people. Relevant departments need to use the existing good foundations to develop the agriculture and livestock tasks. The cooperative system is to be implemented with the direct participation of the people, and successes in the cooperative sector can be seen in developed nations.
It can be seen that some citizens operating the businesses do not pay taxes. Only when the government receives the full amount of taxes, will it carry out the development tasks.
If the infection rate reaches the designated number, stay-at-home restrictions and other restrictions will be lifted from the townships. As such, the people need to abide by the restrictions individually and participate in building the society under the disciplines.—MNA
