Name of the Project
Urban Water Logistics Yangon
Urban Water and Water Logistics in Yangon (UWLY).
Partners for International Business (PIB) is a programme that allows Dutch businesses to enter into a public-private partnership to realise their international ambitions. Doing business abroad is not always easy. You may be confronted with trade barriers, a lack of knowledge among local government bodies and businesses or restrictive local laws. Joining forces with other businesses in your industry and with the Dutch government puts you in a better position.
A coalition of Dutch companies and organisations has signed an agreement on 31st October 2018 to jointly invest and collaborate in a comprehensive 3-year program to support the Yangon Regional Government in addressing critical challenges related to Urban Water and Water Logistics in Yangon (UWLY). The agreement delivers on a promise by the coalition to H.E. Phyo Min Thein, the Regional Chief Minister of Yangon, in June 2018, when he visited the Netherlands. During this visit, he requested Dutch expertise and advise on key topics related to Urban Water: water supply, water resources, water governance and water innovation; and Water Logistics: Yangon sea port, river transport, river dredging and river crossing by tunnelling.
