A local company in Hlaing Tharyar Township is applying for permission to build a small-scale industrial zone to run garment factories, according to Yangon Region Government.
The company intends to build an exclusive small-scale industrial zone near Shwe Lin Ban Industrial Zone, Hlaing Tharyar Township. In an industrial zone, companies may include all necessary buildings in the compound. “Since it is still in the application process, it is not permitted yet,” an official from Yangon Region Government said.
The name of that local company was not disclosed. The proposed area for the zone is around 25 acres. The company has come up with this proposal eyeing for the potential growth of the garment industry.
In Yangon Region, there are 30 industrial zones and 3,500 factories in total according to official figure.
