The Ministry of Transport and Communications signed a Record of Discussion (RoD) with the Korea International Cooperation Agency (KOICA) concerning the ‘Establishment of Vehicle Information Management System (VIMS) for Vehicle Inspection, Registration and Driving Licence in Myanmar yesterday.
The signing ceremony took place at the ministry building in Nay Pyi Taw and was attended by Union Minister U Thant Sin Maung, Deputy Minister U Thar Oo, ROK Ambassador Mr Lee Sang-hwa and officials from KOICA Myanmar Office.
The Union Minister and ROK Ambassador first delivered separate addresses and then, Road Transport Administration Department Director-General U Zaw Min Oo and KOICA Myanmar’s Chief Representative Ms Lee Youn Soo signed the RoD.
KOICA will provide USD 10 million to the project, which aims to develop a virtual private network through a fibre network between the Road Transport Administration Department’s main office and 55 branch offices. This will help speed up the department’s main duties concerning inspection and registration of vehicles and issuing driving licences through online applications. The project is slated to finish by 2030.
This project will be uploaded to the government’s Project Bank website as it conforms with the Myanmar Sustainable Development Plan.— MNA (Translated by Zaw Htet Oo)
