Electricity for a Bright Myanmar

In Myanmar, over 70% of the people have no access to electricity. At the moment, electricity fluctuations are the biggest problem in industrial zones. A factory owner says that when the power stops, workers cannot continue their work, which means that they receive lower wages. In Yangon, entrepreneurs rely on costly fuel and generators when there is no electricity. The World Bank Group is supporting a modern power plant in Mon State that will produce 250% more electricity for the same amount of gas. This will mean reliable electricity for residents, shops, and factories across Myanmar.
