Rapidly growing Yangon and the surrounding area in Myanmar required strategic and systematic development plan, particularly to control the haphazard development for the Yangon Southwest region.

However, Myanmar lacked a system for national planning and urban development.

With its proven experience in national and urban development, Korea was able to offer effective policy consulting and solutions for Myanmar.
