Infographic: 30 Years of Chinese Investment in Myanmar
YANGON—Amid increasing global pushback against Chinese investment, Myanmar’s government has grown more agreeable to involvement in the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI).
Looking back at the last three decades, Chinese investment in Myanmar reached its peak during the 2010-2011 fiscal year after President Thein Sein’s government took office. In the 2011-2012 fiscal year, Chinese investment began a rapid decline after the controversial $3 billion China-backed Myitsone hydropower project was suspended amid public outcry. The years between 2014 and 2016 then saw a steady rise in investment figures from China.
Despite public wariness surrounding Chinese investments, the Rohingya crisis and condemnations from the West over what has happened in Rakhine State have pushed Myanmar back into the hands of the Chinese.
Last year, Myanmar began to adopt a “look east” economic policy and has the Greater China region in its new line of vision. Experts have been surmising that BRI infrastructure projects are set to become the country’s most significant source of investment and support for the country’s economic growth this year.
It is certain that China will remain to be a decisive economic influence for Myanmar which is also a potentially crucial partner in its BRI and other economic plans. In terms of foreign investment figures, China is now Myanmar’s largest investor as well as biggest trade partner.
Here, The Irrawaddy compiles clear visualizations of all Chinese investment projects in Myanmar, including the proposed, those about to be implemented, currently being implemented, completed projects and those suspended due to public pressure and contract agreement issues.

“Pay-as-you-throw” idea for HDB rubbish chutes leaves S’poreans in shock & awe
There are upsides.
Nyi Nyi Thet | March 18, 03:47
A Straits Times (ST) article on March 15, 2019 provoked quite the reaction among Singaporeans
Here is the piece.
The ST article highlights some points brought up by Cheang Kok Chung, the director of National Environment Agency’s (NEA) department for environmental protection policy and international relations.
He was speaking at a presentation during the Sustainable Innovation Expo in Nairobi, Kenya from March 11-15, 2019.
According to the ST article, Cheang had touched on the lack of “pay-as-you-throw” elements in the current waste disposal fee.
One of the difficulties brought up by Cheang was the nature of Singapore’s method of trash disposal, specifically the sheer number of chutes available.
This might hinder an implementation of “pay-as-you-throw” system, as it would utilise a prepaid waste bag system.
Despite the potential obstacles, Cheang said he was hopeful that next time they could report that they were “closer to the ‘user-pay principle’ tax”.
Shock and awe
Singaporeans had some strong reactions to the news.
Starting with this rather inspired meme.
Others took the idea of a “pay-as-you-throw” system and just ran with it.
Not the first time it’s been brought up
The system is by no means a novel idea in Singapore.
In fact, the idea of “pay-as-you-throw” was brought up nearly three years ago in the 2016 Solid Waste Management Technology Roadmap.
Here is a snippet of what they basically advocated for.
One major factor people brought up in bashing the initiative was this.
Which appears to be a major push in getting the Facebook post by Loh Boon Kwang to over 1,000 shares in less than 5 hours.
However, here’s an important point to note.
There’s already a fee
Technically, technically, we are already paying for throwing waste.
There’s an S$8.25 rubbish collection fee for every apartment (both HDB and Condos), and a S$27.47 fee for landed households.
A popular argument to implement the “pay-as-you-throw” model is the idea that you would pay less if you threw less, as opposed to the flat fee everyone is paying, regardless of the amount of waste they contribute.
What could be implemented in the future, as brought up by ST, is a similar method to the South Korean system.
According to an Eco-Business article, here is what the South Korean system would entail.
“Under such systems, residents have to either buy designated bags to dispose of their trash or bring it to centralised rubbish bins equipped with radio frequency identification (RFID) technology that can identify the household, weigh its trash and bill it accordingly.”
That being said, an NEA spokesman did tell ST that there were no current plan to implement a “pay-as-you-throw” RFID system.
