The mayor of Yangon, Maung Maung Soe, saw the first map sign installed in front of Yangon Town Hall on Monday. "To raise awareness of Yangon's historic structure and increase tourist attraction, it is important that local residents know the 15 places in the centre of the town where there are many historic monuments and where it is a commercial centre," he said.
All other 14 planks will be installed in October, Maung Maung Soe added. Guideposts will make it easy for the general population to find the places they want to visit, making their discovery of the town a pleasant one, he said. They are also intended to encourage people to take charge of these fine cultural monuments and open rest areas.
Yangon, Myanmar's commercial capitol, is not only important for the country's economy, but also a wonderful historic town, said Ambassador Tateshi Higuchi of Japan, who attended the inauguration of the first map of the town in front of Yangon Town Hall. Said Japan will work together to preserve and safeguard historic places in Myanmar.
"We will work together in accordance with the Yangon State Council's guideline on the Yangon River which is important not only for the Yangon people but for the whole country," he said. Yangon International Corporation Agency (JICA), Yangon Region Council, Yangon Municipal Committee and Yangon Heritage Trust have teamed up to make the scheme a success.
The Yangon Heritage Trust (YHT) Communications Manager Ma Theingi Lin said the business will help to include the necessary historic content on the map.
