Storyline


A China-aided pilot project in poverty reduction has improved the infrastructure of villages and raised the level of self-development capacity in Myanmar.

China has been participating at Myanmar's anti-poverty efforts. A project called East Asia Poverty Reduction Cooperation (EAPRC) was launched in 2016, which aims to help local villagers to pursue a life of self-independence.

Ma Lwin lives in the village of Min Pyin, about 60 kilometers from Naypyidaw, the capital. The only thing linking the village's 1,000 families with the outside world is a narrow railway built in the 1940s. The inconvenient transport has been the cause of widespread poverty in the village.

Unable to find work, Ma Lwin instead spent her time digging for bamboo shoots on the hills outside the village.

"Depending on the season, we either cut the bamboo or dig for bamboo shoots. I don't remember how much I make a month. I sell 10 to 15 shoots a day. Sometimes 20," said Ma Lwin.

Yin Zhenxiang from Yunnan Province in southwest China is a liaison officer of the EAPRC project. He and his team visited Min Pyin Village to learn more about local conditions before drafting plans to help the village step out of poverty.

"Min Pyin Village is a target of our poverty reduction project. It's located about 60 kilometers from Naypyidaw. Although it's not far, the roads are poor," said Yin.

After talking to the locals, the team concluded that their most pressing task was to build a road.

After several rounds of discussions between the team and the villagers, work on the road finally got underway.

"The Chinese side asked us what type of road we wanted for the first 2.5 kilometers. We held a meeting to discuss it with the villagers. We agreed to build a cobblestone road," said Moe Kyaw Myoe, leader of the Myanmar implementation team of the EAPRC project.

Several other infrastructure projects were also carried out, providing employment for the villagers. Thanks to that, Ma Lwin has a new job and a new life to start with.

"My income has increased a lot. I've bought aluminum panels for my roof. Before, it was very difficult. Now I have two pigs. I have so much more energy," she said.

In Myanmar, employment opportunities and vocational training offered under the poverty reduction project have brought about definite changes to people like Ma Lwin. By introducing its experience in "targeted poverty alleviation" to Myanmar, China hopes to help the Southeast Asian country improve rural infrastructure, raise the level of public services in rural communities, and better enable the villagers to develop by themselves.
