At an event in February, U Tin Tun Naing, Union Minister of Planning, Finance and Investment, made the following announcement:

“Along with the other fundraising projects, we have also made arrangements so that members of all social classes will be able to afford to take part in this revolution. So we want everyone to participate in these arrangements to the extent they can afford and within their reach.”

The End of Dictatorship (EOD) initiatives, a revolutionary fundraising initiative of the Ministry of Planning, Finance and Investment, announced that among the Spring Bliss affordable housing investment projects, the Spring Bliss-3 located at Mingalardon Township is the most popular with the people, as follows:

“The most interesting of the revolutionary people among the Spring Bliss affordable housing investment projects is the one located in Mingalardon. It is close to Yangon International Airport, and in addition, it is just one bus stop away from Pyay Road, so it’s very convenient to get around. It’s a quiet and peaceful place located next to the City Golf Course. It can be said that the environment there is one where the winters are crisp, the summers are not overly hot, and it has football players’ favourite weather during the rainy seasons.”

The Spring Bliss housing projects are intended to be built with 3,000 affordable apartment rooms on military-owned lands in South Dagon, Mingalardon, and Hlaingthaya Townships in the first place. However, the apartments will be expanded for sales, according to the EOD, because nearly 3,600 people have registered for pre-order sales.

The sale of the Spring Bliss affordable housing projects will be officially launched on February 11, and pre-orders can now be registered with EOD’s sales agents.

The terrorist junta killed more than 2,000 people and arrested and detained more than 10,000 others.

6. Executive Order 14014, which was issued by President Biden to impose sanctions on certain Burmese properties in response to a coup by the Burmese military against the country’s democratically elected civilian government, is extended for one year and will therefore continue in effect beyond February 10, 2023

February 7th

President Biden, pursuant to the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (IEEPA) (50 U.S.C. 1701-1706), issued “Executive Order 14014 on Blocking Property with Respect to the Situation in Burma” on February 10, 2021, in response to a coup by the Burmese military against the country’s democratically elected civilian government.

The White House issued a notice on the one-year “Continuation of the National Emergency with Respect to the Situation in and in Relation to Burma” on February 6, which will continue in effect beyond February 10, 2023.

The national emergency (Executive Order 14014) was declared by President Biden to deal with the situation in and in relation to Myanmar, and in particular the February 1, 2021, coup, in which the military overthrew the democratically elected civilian government of Myanmar and unjustly arrested and detained government leaders, politicians, human rights defenders, journalists, and religious leaders, thereby rejecting the will of the people of Myanmar as expressed in elections held in November 2020 and undermining the country’s democratic transition and rule of law, constitutes an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security and foreign policy of the United States.
