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.
