Eleven Myanmar, 15/03/2019
The lives of people living along the Salween River still face the risk of being adversely impacted by developments in the river basin, environment campaigners said on the International Day of Action for Rivers yesterday. Local communities along the Salween River in both Thailand and Myanmar marked the 22nd International Day of Action for Rivers, as a symbol of their efforts to protect their traditional way of life, rich natural resources and the river’s healthy ecosystem from hydropower dam development and other harmful projects. Ban Sobmoei in Mae Hong Son’s Sop Moei district is one of the many Salween riverside communities that also marks World Anti-Dam Day on March 14 every year.

Temporary Thai Centre to Renew Myanmar Workers' Passports
Myanmar Times, 07/03/2019
Thailand's cabinet agreed on Tuesday to establish a Temporary Myanmar Labour Data Collection Centre in Samut Prakan for the convenience of migrant workers seeking to renew their passports in order to continue working in Thailand. The idea for the centre, which will renew the passports of two categories of Myanmar workers, was proposed by the Labour Ministry. So-called "Function a Labourers" have previously been employed in Thailand and hold a passport, a temporary passport (TP) or a certificate of identity (CI). Function B Labourers have already been granted a work permit and a passport in Thailand under a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between the two countries. They will be eligible to use the centre if they wish to keep working in the country after their four-year permit expires. Nathporn Chatusripitak, an adviser to the PM's Office, said the centre also aims to make li...

Thai Refugee Camp Fire Leaves Over 400 People Homeless
Myanmar Times, 06/03/2019
At least 400 people were left homeless by a fire that gutted dozens of houses at Nu Po refugee camp on the Myanmar-Thai border, an officer of a local Myanmar aid agency said on Tuesday. Saw Bway Sae, secretary of the Karen Refugee Committee, said 88 houses were destroyed in the fire on Monday afternoon. "Many houses were gutted, as the wind fuelled the fire. Some houses had to be demolished before the fire could be put out,” he said. “But there were no injuries or deaths in the accident. We still don't know what caused it, as Thai investigators are still gathering information.” Thai police are estimating the damage caused by the fire, and the committee is providing food and shelter to refugees who lost their homes. Nu Po is a large refugee camp in Umphang district of Tak province in western Thailand, which is located opposite Kayin State. The camp was established ...

The Global New Light of Myanmar, 11/03/2019
The Anti-Corruption Commission formed an investigation team to look into a corruption complaint against the Chief Minister of Taninthayi Region, Dr. Lae Lae Maw. The team conducted its investigation in Nay Pyi Taw, Yangon, and Dawei from 4 to 6 February.

More Investments Needed for Expansion in Food-Processing Industry
Myanmar Times, 11/03/2019
The Myanmar processed food industry needs more investment support in order to develop further, U Aye Win, chair of the Myanmar Food Processors and Exporters Association, told The Myanmar Times. Currently, Myanmar processes basic raw commodities such as rice, beans, maize and other agricultural products. Excess products are exported. However, the country also imports value-added processed foods such as canned or dairy products. In that light, Myanmar should increase its focus on manufacturing higher value food products, which will require funds from both local and foreign investors, U Aye Win said. According to the Myanmar Micro, Small and Medium Enterprise Survey 2017 by the Ministry of Planning and Finance, the majority of MSMEs in Myanmar are involved in the food processing sector. Currently, state-owned Myanma Economic Bank lends money to MSMEs in the import substitution busi...

Domestic Airlines Need Mergers, Partnerships to Sustain
Myanmar Times, 07/03/2019
There is a need for domestic airlines to merge or form partnerships with foreign airlines in order to sustain themselves in the longer-term. Stakeholders believe that the way forward for domestic airlines, which continue to be loss-making due to lower number of passengers and higher costs, would be to either merge their operations or form partnerships with foreign airlines. Ticket prices remain high despite the larger number of domestic airlines and the more intense competition, putting off air travelers. Tour operators noted that domestic air tickets were far higher when compared to other countries, making it an obstacle for tourism. Minister for Hotels and Tourism U Ohn Maung told the media recently that domestic airlines must be able to operate in a level playing field with foreign airlines. He had previously suggested that domestic airlines should look for partnerships am...

Organisation Seeks 4000 Teaching Jobs for Disabled
Myanmar Times, 06/03/2019
The Myanmar Federation of People with Disabilities has asked the government to help find 4000 teaching jobs for people with disabilities. At a workshop on promoting employment for persons with disabilities on Wednesday, U Thein Lwin said, “We have been advocating jobs for the disabled in the private sector, so we should do the same in the public sector. People with disabilities face many challenges in life, but many are more than able to teach, so we ask the government’s help to look into setting aside 4000 teaching positions for the disabled,” he said, adding that accessibility issues such as lack of wheelchair ramps are still common in the private sector. Asked to comment, U Myo Aung, permanent secretary of the Ministry of Labour, Immigration and Population,said: “We are working to match the disabled with the right types of work.” Under the Disability Rights Law upda...
