THE German Government announced that it will commit 10 million Euros in additional grants for flood-affected areas in Northern Myanmar.
In the announcement from the German Embassy in Yangon yesterday, German Ambassador to Myanmar HE Christian-Ludwig Weber-Lortsch said, “Poverty alleviation in rural areas is a priority of our cooperation. We don’t push paper, we make good on our promises, on the ground, with the Government and for the people. That is why we are building bridges and roads to reconnect 32 flood-effected villages in Kalay District for 50,000 people. The project started already, thanks to the unbureaucratic assistance of the Department of Rural Development.”
The Ambassador added that “The Myanmar Government organised free and fair elections and is now enabling a peaceful and democratic transition. That deserves respect and support.”
The Myanmar Government appointed the Ministry of Live Stock, Fisheries and Rural Development as project partner and executing agency.
From the German side, KFW Development Bank will implement the project.
