Improvement of per capita income indicates national development, and the government could achieve some progress in over two years since taking office, said Yangon Region chief minister Phyo Min Thein.

"I want to develop the economy of our region. A home facing financial difficulties would have low living conditions. They could be undernourished and unhealthy. There are no good hospitals or clinics. Every poor home could face such difficulties," said the chief minister.

"But, improved per capita income proves the development of a country. We are trying for this. Over two years since taking office, our government has achieved some progress," Phyo Min Thien told a ceremony to open Ngamoyeik reinforced concrete bridge connecting Yeiktha and Aungmingala wards in Hlegu Township, Yangon.

He said two important bridges had been built across Ngamoyeik Creek, thus contributing to community development.
