The Myanmar government has presented its long-awaited economic policy on July 29, highlighting the importance of developing a market-oriented system “in all sectors” and establish an economic framework in support of national reconciliation.
The policy puts national reconciliation as the top priority, based on a “just balancing of sustainable resource mobilisation and allocation across states and regions”.
The government will ensure that natural resource extraction is transparent and sustainable and will extend the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative remit to include the mining industry, it says, and will also weigh up the costs and benefits of economic policies for their impact across the entire country.
Earlier this week the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment Conservation demonstrated its intention to shake up the troubled mining industry, by announcing that jade and gems mining permits will not be renewed until new laws are in place.

Global governments need to all adopt growing hemp as well adopt functional hemp based products into there Sustainable Development Plans.
1 acre of hemp contributes to sequestering 20,000lbs of C02 emissions per acre.
The Canadian Hemp Farmers Alliance https://www.canadianhempfarmersalliance.com has developed the roadmap to Success on how to become a Net Zero Country.
Canada would need to contribute to growing 77 Million acres to become net Zero country. Canada has 150 Million acres fo farmable land available meaning in 365 days hemp can sequester 100% of the C02 emissions.
In order for this to happen and for governments to adopt the Sustainable Development Agenda of the Canadian Hemp Farmers Alliance we would need:
1) United Nations departments to open procurement opportunities
2) Canadian Federal, Provincial and Municipal governments also need to open procurements for functional hemp based products to be purchased
