Seek better ways to improve the socioeconomic life of peasants

Myanmar celebrates Peasants Day in honour of peasants in the country engaging in the cultivation of crops to supply food to the people in all ways. Various kinds of crops including paddy, pulses and beans, teak and rubber earn foreign exchange as income for the nation.
Most of the rural area is placed under various kinds of crops. So also, some 70 per cent of the people are residing in the rural area to cultivate crops and engage livestock farms for ensuring local sufficiency. Hence, the government encourages them to develop their agricultural businesses with the assistance of modern agricultural techniques and expertise from agriculturists. It is because Myanmar can enjoy lesser fruitful results from the agricultural sector, including the cultivation of paddy.
Up to now, the status of Myanmar remains unchanged in the cultivation of various crops as the largest exporter of rice across the world. Hence, the governments in successive eras have been marking Peasant’s Day year after year to honour the efforts of Myanmar farmers in producing various items of crops.

Currently, all citizens from both urban and rural areas are pouring out their strenuous efforts to transform manual farming into mechanized farming to increase the per-acre yield of crops while manufacturing quality livestock products. To do so, it is necessary to raise awareness of farmers in agricultural and livestock businesses. If so, they will have high socio-economic life in the near future.

Practically, the socioeconomic life of rural people, especially peasants is still at the lower level. Only when the government and private sectors provide modern agricultural techniques to them will those farmers have the chance to taste a higher living standard. It is because modern agricultural techniques will boost the per-acre yield of crops which can earn larger incomes for families of farmers.
Currently, the government initiates agricultural, livestock and technical high schools affiliated with the existing basic education high schools in 50 districts across the nation to turn out skilled labour with middle school education to revitalize Myanmar’s agricultural and livestock sector.
On the other hand, the government established the Institute of Fishery in Twantay Township to turn out skilfully educated fishery personnel to apply modern fishery techniques to contribute much to the food security of the nation in one hand. As part of efforts in all aspects to improve agricultural and livestock sectors through the collaborative endeavours of the rural people, the government is striving for the improvement of the living standard of rural people and the food security of the nation.
