BRIEF – Shwe Mann urges land return before monsoon

House speaker of the Burmese parliament, Shwe Mann, urged all government authorities to implement the return of confiscated lands back to villagers before monsoon season so that farmers can prepare to cultivate their fields in time for the rains. Speaking in Naypyidaw on Tuesday, Shwe Mann said this will help farmers across the country get back on their feet and improve Burma’s rice production.
