The Myanmar Times - - News - SWAN YE HTUT swanye­htut@mm­times.com

NAY Pyi Taw City De­vel­op­ment Com­mit­tee’s Mar­ket De­part­ment is form­ing a Mar­ket De­vel­op­ment Com­mit­tee to over­see is­sues re­lat­ing to the Zabuthiri town­ship mar­ket.

“The com­mit­tee will co­op­er­ate with us to im­ple­ment reg­u­la­tions, dis­ci­pline and sys­tems at the mar­ket,” said Mar­ket De­part­ment head U Min Lwin Soe.

When rules are bro­ken, the new com­mit­tee will re­port to the city de­vel­op­ment com­mit­tee, which will in turn take ac­tion.

“As an ex­am­ple, if they find food dyes be­ing used at the mar­ket, the new com­mit­tee will have to ap­pear as a wit­ness,” U Min Lwin Soe said. “We will pros­e­cute if the law calls for it. They [the com­mit­tee] can­not take di­rect ac­tion and pros­e­cute. They re­port and ad­vise.”

The new group will be made up of all stake­hold­ers at the mar­ket, mak­ing it the first of its kind in Nay Pyi Taw.

“Un­der the pre­vi­ous gov­ern­ment a sim­i­lar com­mit­tee was formed,” said U Min Lwin Soe. “But we have re­formed it to in­clude dif­fer­ent types of peo­ple who use the mar­ket, like bro­kers, stall own­ers, labourers and peo­ple who run work­shops.”

The 28 mem­bers will be formed through a vote. Mem­bers will serve five-year terms.
