Guangdong to support Myanmar in infrastructure, productivity

Guangdong province will cooperate with Myanmar to support the development of four sectors under the Belt and Road Initiative, Mr. Ouyang Weimin, Deputy State Administrator from Guangdong province government in China, said at the China-Myanmar Trade and Investment Forum held in Yangon on March 12.

Guangdong is a coastal province of southeast China which borders Hong Kong and Macau. Its capital, the port city of Guangzhou, sits within the industrial Pearl River Delta region.

During a study tour to Guangdong province in October 2018, Chinese president Xi Jinping said Beijing would focus on opening up the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macau region to further trade and development under B&R.

As Myanmar is also part of the B&R initiative, Guangdong province will cooperate with it to develop the infrastructure sector, productivity sector, trade promotion sector and social sector, said Mr Ouyang.

Under infrastructure, the Chinese will offer support to the government in developing the Yangon-Myawaddy transportation network.” For development of the country, transportation needs to be improved. Guangdong province has advantages in developing transport and trade infrastructure, such as bridge construction and port construction so we will help Myanmar on this front,” he said.

Mr Ouyang added there is a plan to cooperate in industrial tools production, garment industry and large-scale manufacturing to help improve local labour productivity in Myanmar.
