Six day meeting of 2nd Amyotha Hluttaw 5th regular session was held at the meeting hall of the Amyotha Hluttaw in Nay Pyi Taw at 10 am yesterday.
Maj-Gen Myint Nwe, Deputy Minister for Defence, replied to the question raised by U Myint Naing of Rakhine State constituency 5 as to whether there have been any plans to abandon the ownership of the confiscated land 15 acres situated at field No 847 (A) in Chaungtha (North) of Zinkharchay village in Kyauktaw township, that the land 15 acres had been ordered to be cancelled from the list of pasture land by Rakhine State General Administration Department, but it would be abandoned in accord with procedures due to being about 10 miles far away from the headquarters of the battalion and being unable to grow monsoon paddy on account of floods every rainy season.
U Kyaw Myo, Deputy Minister for Transport and Communications replied to the question raised by U Kyaw Than of Rakhine State constituency 10 as to whether there have been any plans for building stone embankment which would protect landslide in Pyargyi village of Hmyawtaw U village-tract in Manaung Township, Kyaukphyu district from erosion of tides.
Deputy Minister said, “Due to construction of 150 ft-long 6 stone embankments with the State Cabinet’s added fund of K 126.422 million in the financial year 2014-2015, and 150 ft-long 6 stone embankments with the State Cabinet’s initial budget fund of K 126.422 million, tide-induced erosion was relieved to the considerable extent. But, it was not sufficient for tide-affected length of 7000 ft, the budget allotment was submitted to be granted for further construction and conservation of embankments in the added fund of Rakhine State Cabinet for the fiscal year 2017-2018. Depending upon the fund, construction of embankments will be implemented with the technical aids of transport and communications ministry.”
Afterward, U Aung Htoo, Deputy Minister for Commerce replied to the question raised by U Maung Maung Latt of Sagaing Region constituency-9 as to whether there have been any arrangements for consulting with the Indian Government to carry out policy reforms by reviewing situations on Myanmar-India border trade.

In the Myanmar-India bilateral trade joint committee meeting, increasing items of tradable goods was carried out. And, the trade zone was managed to be opened in Htantalan in Myanmar. In addition, Myanmar has demanded to open a new trade zone in Pan Khwar, Mizoram State in India. Besides bilateral banking services, matters on cooperation in agriculture, fishery, medicine, textile sectors were cordially discussed. 6th Myanmar-India trade joint committee meeting is to be held in New Delhi, India during the month of June, 2017, hence negotiations to be emphasized over the queries raised by the Hluttaw representatives.”
