As the first phase of the project, about 516 villages (70,078 households) in Kathar and Shwebo district will be provided electricity access, citing U Win Khine, union minister for electricity and energy at the ceremony.

Chinese Ambassador Hong Liang expressed willingness of supporting Myanmar's electric power industry's growth to promote the friendship between the two countries as a good neighbor with rich experience in electric power industry.

Also, enhancing the electric power cooperation plays a vital part of promoting the Belt and Road Initiative, Hong Liang added.

The project will be implemented by China Electric Power Equipment and Technology Co. Ltd (CET), which is wholly-owned subsidiary of SGCC.

Guo Ricai, general manager of CET expressed his belief that the project could help the country's power industry development as well as improvement of local people's wellbeing in the region.

The project of creating power transmission line and building substation will be done by 2019.
