Conserving the vibrant Inlay region as a landmark of Shan State requires a collective effort, President U Thein Sein told local management and development committees at a meeting in Taunggyi on Wednesday.
The government has paid special attention to maintaining Inlay Lake and its lush green environs, the president said.

Improved transportation infrastructure can pave the way for regional development, which in turn will contribute to national growth, he said.
He also stressed the need for electricity for industrialization, and higher learning institutions for the development of human resources.
The Inlay region is well positioned to generate a lot of employment opportunities through the tourism industry.
Turning to electoral matters, the president called for collective participation in making the upcoming elections free, fair and successful.
