Bago Province is located in the southern part of Myanmar, about 200 kilometers north of Yangon, and is largely a rural area. Children normally do not have the opportunities to leave this area to pursue their studies. However one dharma master has operated a local school for 11 years. The classrooms are quite simple with some classes even conducted outdoors. A Malaysian Tzu Chi construction team recently visited the area to build classrooms for this school. Tzu Chi Malaysia
Boat Builders working on the banks of the Irrawaddy (Ayeyarwady) River, as it flows through Myitkyina, in the north of Myanmar, where boats are an important means of transport. The Irrawaddy River flows from north to south through Myanmar. It is the country's largest river and most important commercial waterway. Originating from the confluence of the N'mai and Mali rivers, it flows relatively straight North-South before emptying through the Irrawaddy Delta into the Andaman Sea.
Inle Lake in the heart of Myanmar remains a series of villages where despite a surge in tourism you can still see a lot of traditional crafts and trades being employed. One of these is boat building. The boat building style most common on the shallow lake involves long boats with a shallow draft and which are extremely narrow - often only wide enough for one person to sit comfortable. These boats are used as taxis, to ferry goods, and of course to transport people. Their length varies but most are usually roughly the length of a pickup truck. In this footage you can see two men on a manual saw cutting thin planks for a large piece of timber for use in crafting a boat's hull.

Following a landmark mission in June 2012, the Hong Kong Trade Development Council has returned to Myanmar with the largest business delegation yet to the rapidly-opening country. The 4-9 March 2013 visit offered companies a chance to do some advance work on potential opportunities -- including possible manufacturing, joint ventures and even investment in badly-needed infrastructure development in the Southeast Asian nation.
