Yangon gov’t prepares to bring e-Yangon payment system online within six months

THE Yangon regional government is preparing to launch the ‘e-Yangon’ system, a money transfer medium, within six months and the public will be able to access information by calling a phone number (ph 1881) upon completion of the project, said Yangon Region Chief Minister U Phyo Min Thein at a meeting involving officials from a one stop service centre in the Thilawa Special Economic Zone in the second week of this month.
“We are striving to make the e-Yangon system available within six months”, said the Chief Minister, adding that the system must be undertaken to make Yangon corruption free.
The e-Yangon project will be implemented based on progress of the one stop service in the Thilawa SEZ and the regional government is preparing the service to be available in 44 townships of Yangon, except Kokogyun Township.
Yangon Region Minister for Kayin National Race Naw Pann Thinzar Myo expressed her view that transparency will be boosted and corruption can be diminished thanks to the e-Yangon system.
Public awareness of the system will be made via the media following the launch of the system, added the regional minister.
According to sources, e-payment is being used in the Thilawa SEZ where applying for permits can be completed at the one stop service centre and an online system is available for industrial applications.
