Feasibility studies have been conducted for extending Yangon jetty to the mouth of the sea to be able to dock large ships, said Yangon's Chief Minister at a November 12 ceremony during a regular meeting of businessmen and women with Vice President (1) Myint Swe held at the UMFCCI.

"These ports were built in the colonial era and there is evidence that some ports were relocated. As the river changes, it affected the ports and Yangon port was moved to Thilawa," said Yangon Chief Minister Phyo Min Thein.
