Myanmar Stresses Implementation of  Low-Cost Housing



               YANGON (Dec. 8) XINHUA - Myanmar
               Leader Khin Nyunt has stressed the need
               to implement low-cost housing projects for
               the public and service personnel. 

               While meeting with housing project
               officials here Sunday, Khin Nyunt, first
               secretary of the Myanmar State Peace and
               Development Council, said every nation
               needs construction activities according to
               its size, pointing out that there should be
               no over-building that exceeds the
               requirement, official daily The New Light
               of Myanmar reported today. 

               Khin Nyunt, who is also chairman of the
               Myanmar Privatization Commission and
               chairman of the Housing Project
               Committee, spoke of taking lessons of
               construction entrepreneurs who suffered
               loss in some countries due to lack of
               systematic project appraisals. 

               Myanmar has drawn up new housing
               projects in the capital of Yangon to move
               more residents from huts to apartment
               buildings due to considerable population
               growth in Yangon. 

               The population in the capital has
               exceeded 5 million living in 35 townships,
               according to official statistics. 

               Meanwhile, more and more residents
               have been relocated to several new towns
               near Yangon as old huts and buildings
               have been demolished or reconstructed to
               give the capital a more urban look.
