MYANMAR should sign the protocol on the prevention of marine pollution by ships, Deputy Minister for Transport U Zin Yaw told the Pyidaungsu Hluttaw yesterday.
The deputy minister pointed out the advantages of inking the protocol, stressing possible legal action against foreign vessels for illegal disposal of waste in the country’s waters and the cooperation with international organisations in research projects.
Union Minister Dr Kan Zaw discussed a forum on intergovernmental cooperation between Bangladesh, China, India and Myanmar in trade, investment and urban development.
In addition, union ministers and deputy ministers responded to the queries raised by MPs on the Additional Budget Allotment Bill for the 2015-16 fiscal year.—Myanmar News Agency
