Cyclone hit industrial zone back into production mode

Jun '08
The cyclone hit industrial zone of Hlaingtharya in Yangon has successfully recuperated from the ravages of the calamity with almost 95 percent of its 800 factories getting back into production.

Resumption of production was made possible only after a rapid reinstallation of the 156 electricity carrying lamp posts which were destructed by the storm.

Despite a loss of US $2.7 million in property, the seven sub zone industrial park with 50,000 workers made a quick recovery to avoid further losses due to production stagnation.

Most of the zones comprise of factories manufacturing textile and other consumer goods and presently, the post disaster restoration work is entering into a second phase of resettlement and reconstruction.

Over 30 Myanmar private companies are taking part in the restoration work in the cyclone-hit regions and already 60 percent of the power supply, over 76 percent of communication links and over 98 percent of the water supply have resumed in the city of Yangon.
