State-owned carrier Myanma Airways will re-christen as Myanmar National Airways as it looks to once again take to international skies, officials said on December 10.
Myanma Oil and Gas Enterprise (MOGE) has started building a 56-kilometre (35-mile) natural gas pipeline in Yangon to feed more gas to the city’s power plants and gas-fired factories, said officials.

The controversial crude oil pipeline linking western Myanmar to the Chinese border could start pumping within weeks, officials disclosed last week. U Wai Oo, a director with Myanma Oil and Gas Enterprise (MOGE), told The Myanmar Times that a test run would be conducted within the next two months.
