The Ministry of Industry will develop seven industrial zones on top of the 18 it already has. The government hopes that this will provide additional job opportunities for locals.

The seven industrial zones will be located in the Kayin and Shan      States as well as the Mandalay region.

The government will invite foreign investors to inject capital into these zones.

“Some industrial zones are already under construction.Some are about to begin construction. The main objective is to create local employment opportunities,” said an official from the Ministry of Industry.

Of the 18 industrial zones, the Yatanarpon Industrial Zone in Mandalay is the biggest covering 10,000 acres.

“The government has to provide basic infrastructure and electricity to industrial zones,” said Aye Aye Win, deputy director of Myanmar Industrial Planning under the Ministry of Industry.“It is not easy to develop successfully.”

The ministry plans to put up industrial zones in other areas that are not covered yet.

Hpa-An the Capital of the Kayin State is progressing with its infrastructure and has attracted business from Thailand with locations approved by the State Ministry.
