The government is exploring ways to restart development of the suspended Dawei Special Economic Zone (SEZ), saying the SEZ will benefit Myanmar as well as the region.
The Dawei SEZ includes construction of the highway as well as a deep-sea port which will link Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam in the ASEAN region to India, the Middle East, Europe and Africa. A port at Dawei will also shorten transportation time by eliminating the need to navigate around Singapore through the Malacca Straits.
