The proposed zone will manufacture high quality products, Myanmarese media reported quoting Union industry minister Khin Maung Cho. The development work on the 127-acre land will begin once the feasibility study is completed.
The special textile and apparel zone will result in job generation for local people living in Shaw Taung, and would also contribute to the country’s economic growth.
Meanwhile, the Myanmar Investment Commission (MIC) has suggested that apparel stitching factories be set up in Ponnakyun, Sittwe in a bid to create job opportunities for local people and also stop migration.
MIC has recommended several fiscal incentives for companies interested in starting projects in Sittwe, to encourage investment in a less developed region. The proposed incentives include an income tax exemption for seven years and exemption on customs duties and local taxes, on import of raw materials and partially manufactured goods. The relaxation of duties and taxes would be for those companies, who import raw materials to export finished goods.
The state owned investment body has also recommended that an apparel manufacturing facility be built by a public company, in cooperation with an existing garment factory.
There are over 400 apparel manufacturing units in Myanmar, employing over 300,000 people. Japan is the largest importer of apparel from Myanmar, accounting for 33 per cent of all clothing exports. In addition, Myanmar also exports to South Korea, Germany, China and the American markets. (RKS)
