With the technical assistance offered by Myanmar Coll Wall Precast Thailand and partner organisations, three types of public housings will be built with the use of precast system.
The apartments from the projects in downtown area will be sold through 15-year installment plan. Units of public housings on the outskirts of Yangon such as Dala, Hmawby and Htaukkyant townships will be sold through monthly payment system.
