He highlighted key regional statistics, including agricultural and livestock activities. He also discussed the installation of heat shelters to combat the intense summer heat, with plans to construct more.

Discussion made in response to reports

The Senior General highlighted the government’s continued plan to enhance greenery in 13 districts, including a special program to plant trees and forests along roads in Chauk Township. He stressed the importance of locals planting trees around their homes. A project to pump water from the Ayeyawady River will meet the area’s water demand. Union ministers outlined nationwide plans to plant trees, aiming for at least 2 acres of forest per village. They emphasized the need to choose tree species suitable for the region and provide technical assistance to ensure seedlings withstand the climate. Cooperation between the government and locals is crucial to prevent desertification in tropical zones. The ministers also highlighted Chauk District’s potential in oil and cotton production, noting favorable conditions for boosting manufacturing to support MSMEs.

Boost local productivity based on agriculture and live-stock

The Senior General highlighted the State Administration Council’s commitment to following through with future work plans focused on the region’s development. Emphasizing the need for socio-economic progress, he underscored that education is fundamental to economic success. To boost the Chauk region’s economy, increasing local product output is essential, especially given that agriculture is the country’s primary economic activity. This necessitates acquiring highquality seeds, proper land reclamation, sufficient irrigation, and correct cultivation techniques. Given the region’s focus on agriculture, proper land improvements are crucial. While the country produces fertilizers, some are imported, and natural fertilizers like humus, manure, and livestock waste should be utilized.

Livestock activities should focus on directly supporting the region’s food needs. Surplus meat, fish, and eggs can be exported to regions like Bagan, a popular destination for pilgrims, thereby boosting the region’s socio-economic life. There should be a concerted effort to enhance local businesses, approaching business endeavors with a mindset of continuous improvement.

To be a region with good education and health

Chauk region has been an area that had a good industrial base with oil production and it is an area with a good tradition. Chauk is also wanted to be an area where MSME businesses are operated successfully today. To achieve success in operating MSME businesses, the region will need good human resources rich in knowledge and skills. Therefore, it is necessary to make all-round efforts to raise the level of education of the region where it already has good basics on education. As the majority of the population of the country only has primary education, the socio-economic life of the individual people will improve only if the educated people are enriched. It is necessary to continue to maintain the already-had good foundations on education of the region. In order to learn education well, good health is also necessary. To have a healthy life, it is necessary to be able to live with nutritious food. Only with knowledge will we be able to know healthy lifestyles. For peace and stability and rule of law in the region, the people need to live and work in an orderly manner and act in unison. The region will develop only if there is peace and stability.

Plans are being made for construction of buildings to avoid heat in tropical zones

Regarding the weather, Chauk Township is a region with hot weather. In the periods of severe weather, it is necessary to build large buildings where the elderly and those who are not in good health can take shelter to escape the heat. For example, if the pagodas and Gandhakutis are built, they will be able to avoid the heat and gain merit under the shade of the pagodas and teachings of The Buddha and the pagodas and Gandhakutis will become religious buildings as symbols of the region. Therefore, it should be considered. Therefore, it can be considered to build replicas of the Shwedagon Pagoda and the Swedawmyat Pagoda with an inner hall which will be able to accommodate a large number of people in cooperation of officials and donors in tropical areas.

After the meeting, the Senior General presented foodstuffs to the departmental officials and the city elders and cordially greeted them.
