Businessmen engaged in livestock farming will be scrutinised if they fail to strictly adhere to their lease agreements, said an official from the Yangon Region Agriculture, Livestock, Electric Power, Mines and Forest committee.
This statement resulted from undisciplined individuals who are utilising the land without seeking approval from the regional government.
“Some are found not to follow the rules stated in the lease. We will scrutinise these unlawful events,” said U Tint Shein from the committee.
The government needs to contribute so as to enhance the livestock and fishery business by relaxing some rules, said an official from the fishery association.
“Rural people who are mainly dependent on the agriculture and livestock account for seventy per cent of the population, and so the law is needed to support them to upgrade their livelihood,” said U Win Kyaing, the general secretary of Myanmar Fishery Federation.
Livestock farming and fisheries businesses are conducted under the Freshwater Fisheries Law, Farmland Law and Aquaculture Law.—Phyo Lwin Aung (AMIA)
