We must see who will im­ple­ment these pro­jects and with which pol­icy. And the main point is whether it will be ben­e­fi­cial for the peo­ple. And more im­por­tant thing is which money will be used in these pro­jects by ei­ther the gov­ern­ment or busi­ness­men. We must know whose money it is. If the pub­lic fund and pub­lic money will be used in these pro­jects, it must have cent per­cent trans­parency.

Pri­mar­ily whether these big pro­jects will ben­e­fit the peo­ple and the coun­try or not is more im­por­tant than the is­sue of white money or black money be­cause this gov­ern­ment in­her­ited both good and bad lega­cies from the pre­vi­ous suc­ces­sive gov­ern­ments. So this gov­ern­ment is fac­ing the con­se­quences of the past 60-70 years.

Eth­nic Armed Or­ga­ni­za­tions (EAOs), eth­nic or­ga­ni­za­tions in the coun­try and po­lit­i­cal par­ties placed high hope on our gov­ern­ment but we must ad­mit that we can­not live up yet to their great ex­pec­ta­tions.

Most of the high-rise build­ings which were sus­pended (by Yangon Gov­ern­ment’s or­der) are built on pri­vate land. And un­der the then ex­ist­ing laws, up to be­tween 9 and 12 and half storeyed build­ings were given per­mis­sion by the Ex­ec­u­tive Com­mit­tee (EC) of Yangon City Devel­op­ment Com­mit­tee (YCDC). Only above that limit of 12 and half storeyed build­ings, the per­mis­sions were granted by Yangon Re­gion Gov­ern­ment. These ex­ist­ing laws have not yet been amended un­til to­day so these build­ings are legally per­mit­ted build­ings. I think the sus­pen­sion of the build­ing of these high-rise build­ings was a wrong de­ci­sion taken by the lo­cal gov­ern­ment.
