China National Aero-Technology Import & Export Corporation handed over a total of 19 dredgers and supporting vessels to Myanmar at the commissioning ceremony held at Nanthida Jetty of Yangon on Saturday, 14 September.
The dredgers and supporting vessels imported from China CATIC Co., Ltd with assistance of a preferential loan provided by the China EXIM Bank have arrived in Myanmar in August.
This importation will remarkably improve the watercourse dredging ability of Myanmar.
The main rivers in Myanmar like Ayeyarwady, Chindwin, Sittaung and Thanlwin are important for transportation, agriculture, hydro-power as well as water supply for urban and rural areas of Myanmar.
