The Commander-in-Chief of Defence Services Senior General Min Aung Hlaing highlighted the benefits of carrying out farming enterprises at military commands on 19 September.
He made the remarks after being briefed on a 50 acre farm in Nay Pyi Taw about production costs and sales and he said that the imbalance between market supply and demand is the culprit behind rising commodity prices.
He described food shortages as the number one issue facing the majority of Myanmar’s population, two-thirds of whom rely on agriculture for a livelihood. He called on military personnel to take part in the effort to address the problem by selling surplus stock to local communities at reasonable rates.
