The Myanmar government on June 16 called for tenders for its ambitious “mega city” project in Mayangone township in northern Yangon.

The project entails the development of a completely new suburb spanning over 162 hectares that includes new roads, railways and an airport, as well as green zones and large housing projects.

The development is part of the Myanmar government’s Greater Yangon Strategic Development Plan, which is receiving technical assistance from the Japan International Cooperation Agency.

The tenders will be for the construction of buildings such as hotels, shopping malls and housing projects within three years. The responsible body is the Yangon City Development Committee’s city planning and land administration department.

In May 2013, the department announced that Yangon aims to become a metropolis with more than 10 million inhabitants by 2040 – roughly the population of Bangkok -, up from the current estimated population of 5.14 million.
