Urban development plan being formulated for Mawlamyine, Hpa-an, Myawady

A PLAN to improve urban system in Mawlamyine, Hpa-an and Myawady is being formulated by the government with US$80 million loans from the Asian Development Bank (ADB).
The four-year project will be implemented next year by the Ministry of Construction, focusing on installation of urban facilities in those central towns, which plays an important role in establishing an economic corridor to bring more development for Greater Mekong Sub-region.
Livelihood supports will be provided to women in Mawlamyine, Mudon and Ye townships by ADB during the new development project to improve their economic status, said Mr Winfried F. Wicklein, director of the ADB.
Upgrading and improving urban services facilities including establishment of water supply system, drainage system, flood control system and sanitation system will be implemented during the new scheme.
The project also covers further supports along border gates to ensure safe, easy and smooth flow of commodities as well as systematic development of waste collection system and sewage water management system.
Market promotion to develop local small-and-medium-sized enterprises is one of major targets to improve tourism sector to compete with other CLMV member countries: Cambodia, Laos and Viet Nam.—Zar Zar
