Germany provides 10 Million Euro fast-track Grant
The German Government decided to commit 10 Million Euro additional grants for flood-affected areas in Northern Myanmar.
As H.E the German Ambassador Christian-Ludwig Weber-Lortsch put it: “Poverty alleviation in rural areas is a priority of our cooperation. We don’t push paper, we perform our promises: On the ground, with the Government and for the people. That is why we are building bridges and roads to reconnect 32 flood-effected vil-lages in Kalay District for 50.000 people. The project started already, thanks to the unbureaucratic assistance of the Department of Rural Development. Enlarge image
The Ambassador added: “The Myanmar Government organized free and fair elec-tions and is now enabling a peaceful and democratic transition of power. That de-serves respect and support.”
The Myanmar Government highly appreciated the German Funding and appointed the Ministry of Live Stock, Fisheries and Rural Development as project partner and executing agency. From the German side, KfW Development Bank will jointly im-plement the project.
