On Friday, Chairman of the State Administration Council Prime Minister, Senior General Min Aung Hlaing, held a meeting with members of the Magway Region Government and departmental personnel at Magway City Hall.

Chief Minister U Tint Lwin, alongside departmental personnel, reported on various initiatives including agriculture and livestock, regional product production, academic matters, healthcare services, development projects, and deforestation efforts for environmental conservation.

The Union Ministers outlined plans to meet the region's needs according to government stipulations and ongoing projects. The Prime Minister emphasized the importance of environmental greening efforts to reduce heat and the construction of heat-resistant buildings.

For regional development, he highlighted the need for progress in agriculture through double cropping, the use of quality species with good agricultural practices, the implementation of solar-powered river pumping projects to ensure sufficient irrigation water, and meeting targets for oil crop and cotton yields.

The Prime Minister stressed the importance of developing qualified human resources to support agriculture and livestock initiatives. He noted the government's commitment to improving school education and library development, urging cooperation from all concerned parties to achieve these goals.

Highlighting the need for a public security system to ensure regional stability, he underscored the importance of balancing knowledge and caution among individuals. Since every citizen is responsible for defending the state, the People’s Military Service Law has been enforced, and will implement further.

He urged officials to thoroughly understand the law and disseminate knowledge about it to the public. He called for collaboration among all stakeholders and locals to drive the socio-economic development of the Magway Region.

During the ceremony, a cash assistance of 280 million kyats and 5,500 books and periodicals were donated to libraries in the Magway Region.

Following the meeting, the Prime Minister and wife, Daw Kyu Kyu Hla, visited Minbu to inspect the construction progress of Sasana Beikmandaw. They also visited Shin Pin Sekeinte Pagoda, where they offered flowers and water to the Buddha image and made a cash donation for the pagoda's all-round renovation.
