On September 21st, at the press conference on the political and economic situation in Myanmar held at the Presidential Palace, in response to media questions about the tree felling license, Wu Soo, Director General of the Ministry of the Ministry of the Interior, said: According to the Center for National Reconciliation and Peace (NPRC) The policy stipulates that no timber harvesting license will be issued to any armed organization.
He said: Since the beginning of 2018 to today, no armed timber deforestation license has been granted to any armed organization, and no timber harvesting license will be given in the future.
In the past, given the living and living of the members of the relevant organizations, some militia, BGF, some of the civil servants who signed the NCA, and some of the privately-owned timber logging licenses signed bilateral agreements were given. Later, according to the policy, the timber harvesting license was stopped. However, some people said that they would not cut down trees at all, and some trees would disappear under the erosion of natural disasters. Therefore, some people submitted a request letter asking us to approve the timber harvesting license again.
As a result, after careful inspection, the Forestry Bureau granted a tree felling license to some organizations, but once the organization was re-acquired, the number of people who wanted to apply increased, causing damage to the policy. So now no matter which armed organization, whether or not there is wood, it will not be given.
However, many netizens said that timber is a big business and one of the financial sources of some civil martial arts. Although the government does not give the right to timber logging for civilian martial arts, there are countermeasures under the policy. What do you think about this?
