Feasibility study Mandalay-Bagan navigability improvement,with ministry of transport/inland water transport, Netherlands Government, World Bank

The Ayeyarwaddy is a highly dynamic river: very shallow during the dry season, fast-flowing and deep in the rainy season. Sandbanks constantly shift, making the ayeyarwaddy a 'dancing river'. At the same time, the river is extremely important for the economic development of Myanmar. The Ayeyarwaddy navigability study, carried out by Dutch specialist, shows to what extent navigability can be improved. The study is also significant for a substantial project of the World Bank, which is also aimed at improved navigability.
