Firstly, Ministers of the Magway regional government and district administrators presented the preparation for livestock farming and hatcheries in rivers and plans for goat breeding by forming cooperative societies, condition of cotton cultivation, the completion status of COVID-19 vaccination, the situation of local security and the rule of law.
Upon explanation, the Senior General said it is necessary to systematically plant fish in rivers, and cattle and goat breeding will be more beneficial if they are reared in captivity as it will provide not only livestock but also natural fertilizers required for agriculture. The Senior General also suggested that not only broilers but also layers should be raised in large numbers in the Magway region, adding that it is found that poultry farming is more productive with the use of evaporation type, modern breeding system, which can also be used with the solar system on sunny days.
He highlighted the need to make fish and eggs affordable for people to eat nutritious food. An ordinary person needs to consume about 10 ticals of meat and three eggs per day, therefore, the government is releasing fish in rivers and streams across the country, he said.
Regarding oil production, the Senior General said it is necessary to modernize oil mills and carry out systematic milling and be able to produce fertilizers and animal feed from the mills. In addition, he also added the need to preserve toddy plants and toddy products as the toddy plants is an ancient culture of Myanmar and the need to improve yields per acre of cotton cultivation.
It is necessary to cultivate forest trees as a national duty, to implement agricultural activities with industrial farming system, to produce tractors from state-owned tractor factories and to support private-owned factories, to make it available to farmers with good quality and low price, to include production roads in the development of the industrial farming system, which will also solve the problem of labour shortage, he added.
The Senior General also stressed the need to comply with the traffic rules to reduce traffic accidents in the region, to have directions and signs systematically, to take measures to prevent the illegal driving of vehicles, to supervise the proper use of motorcycle helmets, to systematically issue driving licences, and to enforce the rules and regulations to prevent overloading of trucks to prevent road damage.
He instructed officials to work for the development of rural areas and meet the needs as much as possible to reduce the development gap between urban and rural areas in the region. The administration is governed by a democratic system and it is necessary to act in accord with the authority given by law. As the governing bodies in each township, district and state/region-level need to work for the benefit of the people under the law, it is necessary to do everything that needs to be done, he instructed. — MNA
