The State budget will be spent on the census process in 2024 through the collaborative efforts of government departments and organizations as well as public participation, said Patron of Central Census Commission Vice-Chairman of the State Administration Council Deputy Prime Minister Vice-Senior General Soe Win at the second meeting of the commission at the Ministry of Immigration and Population in Nay Pyi Taw yesterday afternoon.
In his address, the Vice-Senior General underscored that as Myanmar collected the census in 2014, one more enumeration of census must be done in 2024 without fail to contribute to correct and accurate census and socioeconomic data of all administrative areas for building the Union based on the democratic and federal system as well as strengthening the genuine, disciplined multiparty democratic system.
The Vice-Senior General said that the census and household registration will be enumerated from 1 to 15 October 2024, and preparations must be made to overcome possible difficulties in the process. The pilot census will be collected in 100 set plots in 20 townships in October 2023.
He urged officials to closely supervise the formation of census units in regions and states and enumeration of the test census on schedules.
The Vice-Senior General disclosed that the Ministry of Immigration and Population successfully enumerated census and household registration in 2014 and has experience in the collection of interim population in 2019, adding that the ministry is making preparations for the collection of census and household registration to be enumerated in 2024.
The country could have techniques and monetary assistance from international organizations for enumeration of past censuses, he said, adding that the State budget will be spent on the census process in 2024 through the collaborative efforts of government departments and organizations as well as public participation.
Enumerating the census needs to deploy a lot of resources including time, monetary affairs and manpower. As such, the results of the census must be useful for the State, he noted.
The Vice-Senior General pointed out that the census process would face various challenges and security measures as well as other unexpected difficulties. Hence, preparations must be made to successfully overcome possible challenges and difficulties and solve them. The Vice-Senior General pointed out that news agencies and social media must be applied on a wider scale to raise public awareness about the census including songs, articles and video clips.
The census and household registration must be enumerated on a self-reliant basis by spending the state budget through the collaborative efforts of ministries.
Chairman of the Central Census Commission Union Minister U Myint Kyaing reported on preparations to enumerate the test census before the primary census, formation of the supervisory committees in regions and states, and other different levels, raising public awareness for the census.
