Rakhine State receives Japanese passenger ship

Rakhine State received a passenger ship donated by the Japanese government to be used for coastal transport routes in Kyaukpyu starting on 25 July.
The Kispanadi-2 has a seating capacity of 80 and a top speed of 25 miles per hour and is one of three ships being donated by the Japanese government to Rakhine under the bilateral Economic and Social Development Programme signed on 12 September 2016.
Japan will also train the Myanmar crew for handling the vessel. Japan will donate a third vessel for use in Rakhine by late 2018.—GNLM
