Residents of Tachilek have reached an agreement with a nearby coal-fired power station on regional development programmes, including agriculture, livestock breeding, education, health and transportation, according to locals and company officials.
The coal-fired power station is being constructed by Min Khit Thit Company and is located near Kyaukhlaingu Village, 14 miles away from Tachilek, Shan state. It will generate 22 megawatts of electricity starting from December 2017.
The review team for the environmental impact assessment, company officials and local people met at the project site on 26 December 2015, and local people raised questions about the project to officials from the environmental conservation department, township development supporting committee and the company.
After the meeting, they visited the project site and viewed round construction tasks there.
