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.
