Second phase of Thilawa SEZ now underway

The second phase of the Thilawa Special Economic Zone has just been initiated on a 2000 hectare plot in Kyauktan Township, 20 km southeast of Yangon.

Organisers of the industrial project are currently undertaking an environmental and social assessment to see how the development will impact local surrounding areas.

“What we’re doing now is to make a preliminary study on environmental effects from the project. People can talk about their concerns. We will make a second-round review based on the public opinion,” said Dr Than Than Thwe, co-secretary of Thilawa SEZ Management Committee.

Half of the land will be developed for industries and the other half will be used for public housing, trading and public spaces, according to organisers.

The Thilawa industrial zone may result in air and water pollution when it starts operating. A good waste management system is also said to be in the planning.
