BUSINESS – Thilawa SEZ seeks only serious relationships

Plots of land at the Thilawa Special Economic Zone will go on sale to bidders in early May, but only to businesses which are committed to developing the economic zone and generating employment, said Win Aung, the president of Thilawa SEA Holdings Public Ltd, speaking at talks with a Hong Kong business mission in Rangoon on 31 March. He said the zone’s operators will introduce a monitoring system under which plots left unutilised will be reclaimed.
