Moves Into Action

In adhering to the advice of the Final Report of the Letpadaung Investigation Commission led by Chairperson Daw Aung San Suu Kyi, and Pyithu Hluttaw, Representative and Rule of Law Enforcement Committee Chairperson, MWMCL has succeeded in beginning its assistance with regional development of the area.
Moving into action, the CSD Team has been formed and has begun its first series of engagements with the surrounding communities. On May 21, the team entered Moe Gyo Pyin South and Moe Gyo Pyin North villages to meet and explain the purpose of the formation of the CSD team, as well as its planned tasks for esteemed Monks and regional people. The team was greeted with enthusiasm by the villagers, who expressed their desire and need for such a team from the Mining Company of MWMCL. During the meetings the Moe Gyo Pyin villagers reported to the team about some of their basic needs of water supply, a Middle School and electricity. MWMCL also discovered that most children of these villages stop education at the Primary level, and for those who wish to attend Middle School, a journey of 2-miles is made every school-day to attend the Mine Town School.

Interview With Mr.GengYi


“Mr Geng Yi, let’s begin our interview by discussing the report of Daw Aung San Suu Kyi that led to the creation of the IC (Investigation Commission). According to the IC report's conclusion, the IC has determined that everything is above board with the details of the Project and that it will in fact benefit the Republic of the Union of Myanmar, as well as profit your company, the Project’s foreign investor. However, the most profound and perhaps only deficiency that the report uncovered was a lack of mutual transparency.

Before the most recent adjustments to the contract, the IC determined that there was little to no transparency on what the investors are doing, as well as on what the joint-venture MEHL (Myanma Economic Holding Ltd.) is doing. People were not aware of the internal activities, and the public in general was not included in any open dialogue. A most relevant question the people would like to have answered is this; how will you prepare and start to work to run your Project to attend to this transparency situation?”
