The 3/2018 meeting of the Implementation Committee on the recommendations of the Advisory Commission on Rakhine State was held at the Ministry of Social Welfare, Relief and Resettlement yesterday.
At the meeting, Dr. Win Myat Aye, Chairman of the Implementation Committee and Union Minister for Social Welfare, Relief and Resettlement, said there were details in the Advisory Commission’s recommendations that can be implemented immediately and others that will take time and planning before implementation. He said the first process was to receive the returnees and help them resettle in their hometowns. He said the committee was also working on the socio-development of the returnees, which will require the cooperation of all the committees involved. He said the reception process will be implemented by the newly formed committee, which will in turn report to the Central Committee for Implementing Peace and Development in Rakhine State. He said the committee will accept help from the Union Enterprise for Humanitarian Assistance, Resettlement and Development in Rakhine and facilitate the other committees formed by the Rakhine State government, such as the Committee for Clearing Burned Lands and Resettlement in Maungtaw District.
Next, Co-Chairperson and Rakhine State Chief Minister U Nyi Pu said the matter of security needs to be considered alongside the implementation process. He said the committee would work swiftly to close the internally displaced persons (IDP) camps and allow news gathering teams to visit the area as soon as possible. He said discussions were on to quickly revoke Section 144, which imposes a curfew, from the affected areas, and it had been revoked in Yathedaung already.
This was followed by Committee Secretary and Deputy Minister of Border Affairs Major-Gen Than Htut, Joint-Secretary and Deputy Minister of Social Welfare, Relief and Resettlement U Soe Aung, and other committee members from the ministries concerned discussing the ongoing processes, and finding solutions to existing problems, to which the Chairman and Co-chairman gave advice as necessary.
