The 13th regular session of the first Amyotha Hluttaw (Upper House) entered its 26th day yesterday, with a question and answer session, an approval process for two reports and the submission of one report.
Deputy Minister for Construction U Soe Tint responded to a question about a government-funded highway in Kayah State posed by MP U Hnin Wai of Kayah State Constituency No. 12. The MP asked whether upgrading and maintenance works are being undertaken with the use of annual funding allocations.
The Union minster said the ministry plans to upgrade roads, build bridges, culverts and rock retaining walls and install guardrails along the Toungoo-Leiktho-Yado-Loikaw-Hopong road during the 2016-2017 fiscal year.
Moreover, the Hpahsaung-Maesenan-Maese-Nantmann road will be upgraded, and bridges and culverts on the road will also be built, the Union minister added.
The ministry and the Kayah State government have already coordinated the installation of new toll gates in the state, said the Union minister.
Deputy Minister for Education Dr Zaw Min Aung also replied to a question about the Ministry of Education’s plan to reopen the Government Technical Institute (Insein), which was posed by U Nu of Yangon Region Constituency No 10.
In his reply, the deputy minister said short-term vocational training courses, including technical courses, are set to open in the main building of the institute.
The 120-year-old main building of the Insein GTI received a Blue Plaque from the Yangon Heritage Trust last December, acknowledging its status as a significant historic building.
Next, reports by the Mining, Natural Resources and Environmental Conservation Committee and the Bill Committee on respective activities undertaken during the first Amyotha Hluttaw were submitted for approval.
MP U Htay Maung, a member of the Amyotha Hluttaw Education, Health and Women and Children Affairs Committee, presented the committee’s report to the hluttaw.
