Myanmar will establish two more industrial zones in Rakhine State, a government report said.
The report on new projects in Rakhine, released last month, said the two industrial estates will be located in Sittwe and Punnakyun townships in western Myanmar. Another zone in Kyaunpyu already exists.
The government also plans to promote agriculture and service sectors in Rakhine by inviting private investors. New farms will be established across four districts in the state.
