Stability, peace in Rakhine absolutely critical: Myanmar

The stability, peace and development of Rakhine State are absolutely critical for entire Myanmar to become stable, peaceful and developed, says a Myanmar government report.

“The current issues in Rakhine State are not only the concern of Rakhine State alone but also the concern of the country as a whole,” says the report.

Bangladesh Immigration and Passport Department has completed biometric registration of 10,66,088 Rohingyas while the new arrivals from Myanmar now stand 688,000, according to the UN migration agency - IOM.

While there is so much work to be done for rule of law and development across the country including Rakhine State, the Myanmar government is putting a great deal of determined efforts into promoting rule of law and enhancing development, according to Myanmar newspaper The Global New Light of Myanmar. This newspaper shared the government report on Tuesday.

In doing so, the report says, the national level development projects and plans as well as those for Rakhine State have been implemented. 

The implementation of those plans and projects is found to be highly relevant to and in line with the recommendations put forward by the Advisory Commission on Rakhine State. 

The Advisory Commission on Rakhine State submitted its interim report in March, 2017. The implementation of the recommendations of the interim report started from 1 April, 2017 and in order to increase the momentum, the Myanmar government established the Committee for Implementation of Recommendations on Rakhine State with 19 members on October 9 last.

The Committee has to release its report to the people on the progress of its implementation every four months. 

This report covers the period from 1 April, 2017 when the implementation of the recommendations started before the formation of the Committee up to December 31 last.

Since both domestic and foreign investments play an important role in the state’s economy, the Rakhine State Investment Commission was established on July 7 last and the Directorate of Investment and Company Administration opened its state office on 30 October, 2017. 

Till now, they have verified and granted concessions to a total of 48 investment projects, including 6 livestock and fishery projects, 2 construction projects, 11 hotel and tourism projects in accordance with the Myanmar Citizen Investment Law, as well as 1 mining project, 27 energy projects and 1 service business in accordance with the Foreign Investment Law, with an aim to create job opportunities for local people.

In citizenship part of the report, it said, the government seeks to actively engage the Islamic religious groups in the country to mobilize more participation and cooperation of Muslim people in the verification processes.unb.
