Gov’t to build low-cost housing in rural areas

The government is planning to build more than 1400 low-cost housing, spending more than Ks 4.4 billion (nearly US$ 4.4 million), for poor rural families this year.

A report by the Ministry of Livestock, Breeding and Rural Development says that low-cost housing will be built in 14 states and regions, including around the capital Nay Pyi Taw, and villages in six self administered zones.

“We are going to build rural low-cost housing this fiscal year. Those who have already demanded to build rural housings because they have a land but have no houses. That’s why; we have to build housings in the rural areas where the villagers can’t afford to build a house. Moreover, we have a plan to construct other beneficial buildings for rural people,” said Hla Myo Aung, Assistant Director from the Department of Rural Area Development.

The government has already targeted to spend Ks 1.67 million for the construction of 523 low-cost housing projects which to be built in Kayah State.

188 low-cost housings worth of over Ks 560 million (nearly US$ 583,333) will also be built in Shan State.
