Union Minister for Natural Resources and Environmental Conservation U Ohn Win inspected the storage of raw jade in the jade storage area in Dekkhinathiri Township, Nay Pyi Taw yesterday morning.
There, the Union Minister inspected the storage of raw jade and the arrangement of jade lots to be auctioned in the 56th Myanmar Gems Emporium, which will be held from 11 to 20 March 2019.
He also viewed the arrangement of jade lots from Sankatan 1 block, operated in a joint venture between the State and U Ya Gem Company in the jade storage compound, the storage of 28 raw jade pieces cut from a 308 ton jade boulder found at Maklinchaung 2 block, operated by Yadana Taung Tan Company, and the installation of new CCTV cameras for security.
The 55th Myanmar Gems Emporium concluded on 30th June last year at Mani Yandana Jade Hall in Nay Pyi Taw.
The Emporium lasted for 10 days, during which 5,259 jade lots worth 423.118 million euros, were sold to merchants.
Most of the jade lots were bought by Chinese gem merchants, and they were better represented than gem merchants from Thailand, Canada, Australia and the US, who were attending the emporium.
Myanmar Gem Enterprise Managing Director and company officials provided explanations, and the Union Minister reviewed the necessary arrangements. Later, the Union Minister inspected trees planted during the 2018 monsoon tree planting festival in Pho Zaung Taung reserve block 17 near Nay Pyi Taw-Tatkon No. 1 Road mile post.
He also viewed a mixture of 12 bamboo species planted during the 2018 rain season in a 1.18 acre bamboo plantation near Orthopaedic Hospital in Ottarathiri Township, Ottara District, Nay Pyi Taw. Further, the Union Minister remarked on making preparations to conduct similar plantings of trees during the upcoming rain season. — MNA  (Translated by Zaw Min)
