Local, foreign media to visit Maungtaw

The Ministry of Information is working for both foreign and local media groups to make excursions into the Maungtaw District in northern Rakhine State, the site of violent attacks in October on border police outposts that prompted months of security clearance operations. A team of 20 foreign and local media groups led by General Manager U Ye Naing from the Ministry of Information’s News and Periodicals Enterprise will travel to Maungtaw District from 28 March to 1 April.  The media groups have received permission to freely investigate the district for news concerning the October attacks, the fleeing and resettlement of families, damage and reconstruction of areas destroyed by fire, the resulting decline of the fishing industry of the district, immigration and trading of merchandise near the border. Foreign and local media made a previous trip to Maungtaw District on 19 December 2016.
