Myanmar new Capital CityBurma's new capital
In Myanmar, why has the capital moved from Yangon to Naypyidaw?
"Naypyidaw is located in large, bulky "zones" - owned by big names such as hospitals, governments, government offices, the army grounds (surrounded by impressive metallic walls and soldiers) - making it very difficult to find out where the city is. The city was described by an Hindu reporter as "dictatorship through cartography".
Rangoon is 320 kilometers southwards with five million inhabitants, in which one in ten of the country's inhabitants live. However, even if this city came to a halt through open protest and demonstration, the Burmese army rulers - happy in the midst of rice paddies in the midst of nowhere - would stay untouched.
Now, the capital of Myanmar before English colonization is Mandalay. In the colonial period Yangon was the most important city for trade, transport, etc. So after we had freed ourselves from the English Kaiser, Yangon was the capital because it was the big city. Naypyitaw, Myanmar's capital, is one of a kind and the best place for any kind of army business, but Yangon is not.
The capital should also be in the centre of the land. Myanmar's trading city is still Yangon. There is no official evidence of the concept behind the transfer of the capital from Yangon to Naypyidaw (formerly known as pyinmana, kyetpyay), although we can make a statistical plot theories. Naypyidaw is almost in the centre of Myanmar and has itineraries to all parts of the land except the lower part of Myanmar (two major states).
Although there are no obvious indigenous produce or agricultural businesses, the army seems to be confident that if they move the capital to a neighboring area of the main roads, they can monitor the economy and product flows. The then regime was at conflict with most rebel tribes and they want to extend their reach to the Mandalay area.
The notion of the federal administration and the Burmese Upper/Lower House ("Hluttaw") has already been developed and has established the necessary infrastructures for the coming state. This is all I can think of, because most of the detail is still unfamiliar to many of us, such as how many armed forces are active in the area.
Yangon, the old capital, was in the immediate vicinity of the Gulf of Martaban and in the plains, a great danger to his government. Situated in the centre of the new capital, it has more strategic opportunities to react to "foreign invasions". It must be borne in mindfulness that the Myanmar tribe is both profoundly and superstar.
He' ll do anything to remain in charge, even if he had to move the capital. It is always difficult to be 100% sure when it comes to the "why" in Myanmar, but on this issue: It is also indicated that the capital city has an unnecessary motorway (where you can use soccer ) that can serve as an airstrip in an emergencies situation.
It' also quite far from Yangon, where most of the population lives, which would make it more difficult for hooligans to show up in the administration office. The entire capital is in the centre of the country. Myanmar's capital city was Yangon after the Third Anglo-Burmese War, due to the concept of the Royal Colony to take advantage of transportation and the war.
