Under the directive of the Union Enterprise for Humanitarian Assistance, Resettlement, and Development in Rakhine (UEHRD) to provide humanitarian assistance, carry out resettlement and rehabilitation and work for development in Rakhine State, Asia World Company Ltd - through its charitable foundation Asia World Foundation - has responded to the call for public-private partnership towards this community effort.

In line with its strong company culture towards community contribution as a responsible corporate citizen, the Foundation is committed towards delivering the not-for-profit road project from Angumaw to Maungtaw. With our local resources and fleet of machinery in the area, the teams have been hard at work on the 50-mile road project since December 2017. AWF is part of the Construction and Infrastructure Task Force, a major task force amongst the nine task forces under the UEHRD. In line with task force’s objectives, AWF has taken the lead to rapidly organize its resources and donations to contribute its infrastructure and construction resources to this project.

Delivering our machinery by ship from Yangon Port to Angumaw

After the completion of this road, transportation from Sittwe to Maungtaw will take a much shorter time, and this will bring about many benefits to the region. First, the new road will significantly cut down the travel time in transporting urgent supplies and materials to the region to aid in current redevelopment efforts. In addition, the completed road is expected to facilitate smoother and more efficient movement of border trade, particularly since Maungtaw Border Trade Zone is one of the key border trade gateways which actively trades agricultural and industrial products throughout the year. With improved transport and accessibility, this also means the region will also benefit from more potential development, job creation, greater economic prosperity and improved living standards. AWF is proud to play a role towards the broader macro-economic plans for Rakhine state’s development into a special economic and industrial zone in the future.
