The forum was attended by more than 230 participants. They included workers affiliated with the Yangon City Development Committee (YCDC), employees in Yangon's Pollution Control and Cleansing Department, members of the Myanmar Engineering Society, and representatives of local universities and business corporations.
A summary of the forum is available online on the Nikkei Asian Review website, indicated below.
The fourth and final forum in the series will take place at a hotel in Yangon on June 10 (Thu). Its themes will be waste collection, transport and treatment, and administrative responsibility. As with the first three forums, every effort will be made to respond to the aspirations of the participants to provide Myanmar with a clean and healthy environment, as a way of contributing to the country's further development.
Going forward, the MHI Group will continue, through its business activities, to address a variety of social issues on global scale, aiming to share future value with a wide spectrum of stakeholders.
