BURMA: Vagrant Beggars in the City YANGOON

by Myit Makha Mediagroup on 1 Jan, 2013

A women of about 36, in worn-out clothes, covering her head with a draper, holding an infant in her bosom, is begging money approaching car after car which are stopping at the U Wisara Road Traffic light.

She can earn 15,000 to 20,000 Kyats daily and sometime more, she said. Because of her pitiable situation with a malnourished infant, she earns such an income, she said.

On the days without ( bringing ) the  child, it is difficult to earn even 10,000 ( Kyats ). “ The infant holding in her bosom wrapping  up in the draper is not her own-child, but hired on money at 5.000 Kyats a day,”she spoke out.

“ Out of 15,000 to 20,000 Kyats we earned, we have to pay 5,000 Kyats a day for hiring the child.” She explained.

It is learnt from the peer groups that among the beggars working at the traffic lights, those accompanied with the infants earn more than the lone ones do.

Due to earning more with the infants,  it becomes the practice of begging with hired infants in the beggars’ environment.

But the supply of the infant for hire is limited, so it is necessary to ask in advance.” She said. Continue reading “BURMA: Vagrant Beggars in the City YANGOON”

Work on Laos-Myanmar friendship bridge to start soon

Laos and Myanmar will begin building a friendship bridge across the Mekong River next month, providing the first road link between the two neighbouring countries with the aim of boosting trade, investment and travel in the region.

Minister of Public Works and Transport Mr Sommad Pholsena led a Lao delegation to Myanmar for talks on January 8-10 to discuss the bridge construction project with Myanmar officials.

It was decided that a ground-breaking ceremony for the bridge will take place next month, linking the Xiengkok river port in Luang Namtha province in Laos with Kainglap in Myanmar.

The bridge will be 660 metres in length and 9 metres wide excluding sidewalks, but it is unclear how much the project will cost or when it will be completed as the bidding process is yet to be concluded.

During bilateral talks which took place on January 9, the two sides discussed and agreed upon various technical aspects of the bridge.

The Lao border with Myanmar is defined by the Mekong River, which flows from southern China to the Mekong Delta in southern Vietnam.

The two countries established diplomatic ties in July, 1955, but the volume of trade between Laos and Myanmar is small compared to that with Laos’ other neighbours.

The leaders of the two countries agreed that the bridge will help to boost the volume of commodity flows between Laos and Myanmar and facilitate business and tourism activities in the area.

In fact, the leaders of Laos and Myanmar have been planning a friendship bridge for a decade or so , to allow their peoples to trade and make visits. Continue reading “Work on Laos-Myanmar friendship bridge to start soon”
