Ja­panese com­pany to help build wa­ter sup­ply in­fra­struc­ture in Yan­gon

Mizzima Business Weekly - - IN FOCUS -

Farm­ing and con­struc­tion equip­ment man­u­fac­turer Kub­ota Corp. has said it will build wa­ter sup­ply in­fra­struc­ture in Myan­mar’s com­mer­cial cap­i­tal of Yan­gon to­gether with other Ja­panese and South Korean part­ners, to meet grow­ing in­dus­trial and house­hold de­mand for clean wa­ter in line with the South­east Asian coun­try’s eco­nomic de­vel­op­ment, the Ja­pan Times has re­ported. The com­pany, which also pro­vides wa­ter en­vi­ron­ment so­lu­tions, and its part­ners have re­ceived or­ders worth about ¥10.5 billion ($92.7 mil­lion) to build a wa­ter sup­ply sys­tem — in­clud­ing pump­ing sta­tions, treat­ment fa­cil­i­ties and pipelines — from the Yan­gon Mu­nic­i­pal Gov­ern­ment, Kub­ota said. The un­der­tak­ing is part of the Greater Yan­gon Wa­ter Sup­ply Im­prove­ment Project aimed at en­hanc­ing wa­ter sup­ply ser­vices, aided by soft loans from the Ja­panese gov­ern­ment.
