The Myanmar ministry of industry which had initially mooted the idea of creating a special zone for textile and garment industry earlier in August has decided to allocate 3,000 acres of land for the project.

The project was earlier planned to be setup near Tadaoo in Mandalay, but challenges of transportation, forced the ministry to find another place.

“We have discussed the first part of the project. The union government plans to provide 3,000 acres of land for the special zone and we are now choosing the project area,” U Thein Lwin, general manager at the ministry of industry, told Myanmar Business Today.

The ministry of industry had formed the Myanmar Textiles Manufacturers Association in June to strengthen the development of the textile and garment sector by bring all textile-related business under one umbrella.

“The special zone will collectively organise all textile-related businesses at the same place, which will be advantageous for the sector,” U Myo Aung, member of the Myanmar Textiles Manufacturers Association said. (AR)
