Nay Pyi Taw September 25
The factory terminated car production for various reasons. But now it has resumed its work of producing cars which are required by the Tatmadaw and is striving to support the country in a way. The cost of a locally produced car is much lesser than that of an exported car. So, technological skill must be applied subject-wise to produce quality cars and parts. Moreover, technological skill must be relayed. The factory will be able to produce vehicles with prestige, said Commander-in-Chief of Defence Services Senior General Min Aung Hlaing at his meeting with staff of the Defence Services Heavy Industry (Yangon).
The Senior General, accompanied by senior military officers of the Office of the Commander-in-Chief, Commander of Yangon Command Maj-Gen Thet Pon and officials, inspected the industry this morning.
