THE government of Myanmar’s Mon state has green-lighted a local company’s plans to build a US$12 million hotel and beach resort zone in Ye Township, with work on the first resort to begin this year.
Aurum Company, which was awarded the government contract, will construct the first resort along a 12.9km stretch that starts at Ka Byar Wa Village in the township and reaches down to the mouth of the Ma-kyi-chaung stream.
Besides accommodations, Aurum has announced it will carry out local development projects to upgrade road infrastructure and build healthcare services, libraries and markets, etc.
Other long-term plans include inviting more domestic and foreign investment to the area, and nurturing nature tourism, environmental protection and marine research schemes, ethnic literature and cultural development.
