Mon State to Get Deep Water Port

A local firm is in talks with an American company to build a deep water sea port in Mawlamyine, the capital of Mon state, according to Mon State government officials.

Amherst Group LLC, based in Delaware, and Global Integrated Service Company will cooperate to construct an industrial zone and deep water port along the coast near Pa Nga and Kyaikkhami villages in Thanphyuzayat city.

Officials of Mon State government and the two companies met and discussed this matter late last month.

The project proposal is expected to be submitted by the firms to the Myanmar Investment Commission soon, officials said.

U Ohn Myint, chief minister of Mon State, said that the project will create job opportunities for local people and support the development of Mon state.
