Mizzima Business Weekly - - ETHNIC NEWS ROUNDUPS -

The Up­per House ses­sion held in Nay Pyi Taw on March 13 dis­cussed road con­struc­tion works, ac­cord­ing to news re­ports. Dur­ing the ses­sion, Rakhine State con­stituency (4) MP Kyaw Kyaw asked whether there was a plan to up­grade the in­ter-vil­lage road that con­nects Gonkyun Vil­lage, Mrauk U Town­ship, with Pan­myaung Vil­lage, Min­bya Town­ship, in Rakhine State. In re­ply to the ques­tion, Deputy Con­struc­tion Min­is­ter Kyaw Lin ex­plained that the road was not in the road list of the cen­tral gov­ern­ment. He said that the road needs to be in­cluded in the list pre­pared by the Min­istry. The Rakhine State gov­ern­ment needs to sub­mit the pro­posal to the cen­tral gov­ern­ment’s of­fice to in­clude it in the list, and once it be­comes a road un­der the Min­istry, funds will be re­quested, he said. Then, depend­ing on the avail­abil­ity of funds, the road will be up­graded, said the Deputy Min­is­ter. The Up­per House also dis­cussed about the plan to up­grade the in­ter-vil­lage road in Kyauk­taw Town­ship that con­nects Yangon-Sittway Road and Kansauk Vil­lage-Kan Thone Sint-Don­nar-Nichay-Aukla Vil­lage and the build­ing of a 120-feet-long re­in­forced con­crete bridge cross­ing a branch of Yoe creek near Kansauk Vil­lage. The Up­per House also dis­cussed the bill on the amend­ment to an anti-cor­rup­tion law. In other news, the Lower House ses­sion on March 13 dis­cussed power sec­tor.
