Yangon Government to Privatise Running of Golf Driving Ranges, Toll Booths

Yangon’s munici­pal authorities are planning to invite bids from companies to run 43 state-owned enter­prises in the hope of mak­ing them more efficient, government media has reported.

The enterprises include the collection of road tolls fees, the operation of public toilets at markets, aquatic feedstuff busi­nesses and golf driving ranges, an official from the Yangon City Develop­ment Committee (YCDC) told the Global New Light of Myanmar.

The committee is plan­ning to grant leases for the projects in the next fiscal year, which begins April 1.

The YCDC has already announced plans to pri­vatize garbage collections in the city.

The region produces over 2,500 tons of rub­bish daily and the munici­pal authorities says they are losing about K13.3 million (over $10,000) per day, according to sta­tistics.

The committee employs 4,000 sanitation workers who collect trash from over 8,000 dustbins and nearly 3,000 trolleys us­ing more than 450 gar­bage trucks. Xinhua
