Vice-Chairman of the Private Sector Development Committee and Union Minister for Commerce Dr Than Myint visited the workplace of “Han Win Saw” advancing glazed business in Nwe Nyein Ward, Kyaukmyaung Town in Shwebo Township, Sagaing Region yesterday.
The Union Minister accompanied by Sagaing Region Immigration and Human Resources Minister U Myo Kyaw Thu and Consumer Affairs Department’s Director-General U Myint Lwin held a meeting with ceramic pot makers and locals at the “Han Win Saw” Glazed Business’ meeting hall.
Speaking at the meeting, the Union Minister urged ceramic pot makers to try hard together to protect Myanmar’s traditional glazed business by improving technologies and expanding markets.
Those who attended the meeting said the use of glazed wares is more suitable for health than the use of fibre and plastic products.
They also asked the ministry to provide trainings for the glazed industry’s long-term sustainability that is at risk because of insufficient supply for demand and labour shortage.
They also discussed availability of L.P.G Gas and replacing fire bricks for clay bricks that are needed for quality glazed wares. The Union Minister coordinated over the attendees’ reports.
The Union Minister and party met businesspersons at the Kanaung Hall of Shwebo Industrial Zone. At the meeting, iron frame and iron door making business owner U Win Bo discussed the loans given by the government during COVID-19.
The industry’s secretary discussed agricultural difficulties caused by lack of water in ThaPhanSeik Dam. He suggested that water in Chindwin and Ayeyawady rivers should be piped to the dam.
Daw Moe Moe Myint from Theelone Village reported the difficulties of tax payment for Farmland Form No.7 name changing. The Union Minister coordinated over the matters.
He also visited the Shwebo Poultry Farming Special Zone and met with local farmers.
The Union Minister accompanied by Sagaing Region Chief Minister visited “Myitta Yeik Women Care Centre and Vocational Institute” and provided cash assistances for the institute.—MNA
