E&S Update

Early September 2017, MMID commenced implementation of the land acquisition and resettlement action plan for the Mandalay Semeikhon Port (MSMP) Project, with international consultant support.

Over the next several months, we will strengthen ongoing MSMP engagement with local communities located near the Semeikhon Port and along the Port Link Road.

This will include undertaking a process to check on farmers/land owners who were compensated for their land in relation to the Semeikhon Port Project and review their progress in their livelihoods. We will then put in place a regular monitoring and evaluation program to monitor the ongoing livelihood status of these communities.

We will also develop and implement a:

          - Regular stakeholder engagement program, including a documented community complaints procedure; and a

          - Structured community benefits program that includes a focus on livelihoods development

The community benefits program will be implemented over time, as the Semeikhon Port Project continues to develop, and will build on the corporate social responsibility (CSR) activities that MMID has implemented in nearby communities since 2012.

E&S Information

With support from IFC, the project MMID has commissioned the following work by qualified international consultants: (i) an environmental and social impact assessment has been completed, leading to detailed environmental management and monitoring plans; (ii) an assessment of land acquisition activities at the project footprint areas against IFC Performance Standard 5 requirements was also completed; (iii) supporting the company’s implementation of the land acquisition action plan.

MMID Signed Joint Venture Agreement with IFC on 23rd August 2017 to develop and operate Ayawaddy Semeikhon river port project, located at the east bank of Ayeyarwady Rive 17 Km from Myotha Industrial Park.  The project will be develop in phases to allow for traffic build-up over time. In Phase 1, IFC Infra Ventures is expected to contribute up to US$3.85 million towards development of the port, which consists of one floating berth with 50 Ton cranes, to handle 200,000 tons of general cargo, containers and roll on-roll off cargos. Upon its completion, the project will support Mandalay’s economic growth by facilitating trade in the region, as it would be the first of its kind modern inland water port to bolster Myanmar’s water transport sector.
