Naypyidaw [Myanmar], Sept. 22 (ANI): After a transition from military rule to a civilian government in 2011 along with its open door policy, Myanmar has become a progressive nation.

With fast economic growth and rapid increase in overseas investment, Myanmar has been called the Last Frontier of Asia.

With developing industrial parks, commercial facilities and the combined consortiums of Myanmar and Japan and the development entity, the Thilawa Special Economic Zone is reaching new heights. The special economic zone is located in the Thilawa area, about 23 km southeast from the city center of Yangon.

The development here is looking forward to create infrastructure similar to developed countries, calling for overseas investment, creation of jobs and eventually expanding to the whole country.

The Japanese KUBOTA Corporation is in charge of water supply, water purification and sewage treatment equipment.

In Myanmar, where the water-environment countermeasures are being advanced and not enough operational control technicians are there, Kubota Corporation is establishing a regular patrol service system and supporting the stable operation of the delivery facilities.

Hiroshi Omori, General Manager, KUBOTA Corporation, Yangon Branch, said, "The water source here supplies 6,000 tons of water per day to the industrial park. This is the water purification plant of the Thilawa Industrial Park. This precipitation separation process uses chemicals. Eventually it will be filtered in that sand filtration tower, sterilized with chlorine and provided to tenant companies."

"For Kubota Corporation, making suggestions on the total solution of water infrastructure, expanding the Kubota water environment package model of Thilawa Industrial Park inclusive of construction and maintenance to the ASEAN region and contributing to an environment-friendly economic development is our mission," Omori added.

With the economic development coupled with liberalization of people, goods and money, the needs of water environment infrastructure equipment is expected to grow.

Since its establishment in 1976, the correction techniques of quality control and maintenance have accumulated in addition to machinery leasing.

Under established traceability towards national and international standards, the engineers who are capable of handling multiple domestic and international models conduct correction tasks. (ANI)
