U Tun Tun Hein, Pyithu Hluttaw Deputy Speaker and Chairman of the Joint Coordination Committee (JCC) on Hluttaw Development, presided over the launch event of Factbook of Parliamentary Constituency for MPs held at the parliamentary building in Nay Pyi Taw yesterday afternoon. During the event, the Pyithu Hluttaw Deputy Speaker said that the factbook consists of detailed information on regional population census, health, education, businesses and land matters of relevant townships.
The facts were obtained from three main sources: the township-level General Administration Departments, the Ministry of Labour, Immigration and Population, and the official website of United Nations Population Fund, formerly known as United Nations Fund for Population Activities (UNFPA).
The factbook was compiled by researchers from the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), the Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU), and Hluttaw Offices. The Pyithu Hluttaw Deputy Speaker called on all the MPs to effectively use the book to bring about benefits to their relevant constituencies. The event was attended by MPs, and officials from UNDP, IPU and Hluttaw Offices. —MNA (Translated by Maung Maung Swe)
