The Ministry of Industry and the Myanmar Pulp and Paper Industrial Association will cooperate with each other in producing pulp and paper to meet the local demand, according to the Ministry of Industry.
Plans are underway to produce advanced paper from pulp made of straw, which is a byproduct of the paddy plant, and the cooperation will be raised to manufacture machinery for production of pulp and paper at home.
Therefore, arrangements are being made to build small-scale factories with a small amount of investment and to create jobs for the local people. Currently, the Ministry of Industry will continue to develop only heavy industries, while small-scale industries will be transferred to private industries for further development.
In Myanmar, paper production was carried out at Sittoung paper mill, Yeni paper mill and Thabaung paper mill. The newsprint factory (Thabaung), which has been suspended for various reasons, was put into service again in August 2023, and the Sittoung paper mill was dissolved due to old age. — ASH/TKO
