JICA is carrying out fea­sibility study for the con­struction of Hantharwady International Airport, but the construction work has not launched yet. But there are rumours that stones for construction are supplying to the construction sites, an­nounced by the Ministry of Transportation through State medics. The department neither invited tender nor granted permission to any­one for the supply of stones for airport construction. Not to lose benefit for public and entrepreneurs because of this rumour, we announced through state owned news­paper, if the project launches, we will announce in due course,” said an officer from Department of Civil Aviation. DCA is still discussing for the signing of Frame Work Agree­ment with tender winner JGC Yongnam- CAL Consortium for the implementation of Hantharwady Airport, the largest airport in Myanmar.
