THE Korea Engineering Consultant Corporation (KECC) is considering the prospect of building high-quality highways around Myanmar, according to the Myanmar Construction Entrepreneurs Association (MCEA).
KECC and MCEA will discuss the prospect on 15 February.
“KECC is currently interested in building high-quality highways in Myanmar. We have been planning to hold a meeting with the Ministry of Construction and KECC,” said U Tin Aung Myint, associate secretary of MCEA.
On 16 February, KECC and the Union Minister of Construction will meet to discuss potential highway upgrade projects.
“We will know detailed information after the discussion on which roads will likely be upgraded when we meet with the Minister. Only the Yangon-Mandalay highway is currently regarded as high-quality. If we could upgrade the other highways, more foreign investments might enter Myanmar,” said U Tin Aung Myint.
KECC has been conducting surveys to upgrade highways in Myanmar since 2015.
Currently China, Japan, Thailand and Singapore have the highest investments in Myanmar’s infrastructure sector.
