Myanmar to open over 800 private gas stations

The Myanmar authorities have granted green light to the opening of 801 private fuel filling stations in the country this year, local media reported Sunday.

Altogether 1,243 applicants have sought license for operating private gas stations since 2010, said the 7-Day News, adding that the remaining 442 applicants are under scrutiny for permission.

Privately-owned gas stations were allowed in Myanmar since June 2010, before which all gas stations were run by the government.
