“We will transfer the planned budget for rural development in those regions. After that, under their instruction, tenders will be invited and continue. Staffs for rural development are there in accordance with the townships. They check and report whether there is progress in work,” said Assistant Director Hla Myo Aung from the Department of Rural Development.
The money will be spent on rural roads, bridges, water distribution, electricity, and rural housing - creating more job opportunities in self-administered zones such as the Pa-O zone, Palaung zone, Danu zone, Kokang zone, Wa region, and Naga zone.
In addition, 30 low-cost housings are arranged to be built in six self-administered zones of Myanmar.
