TAN CHONG MOTOR MYANMAR PROVIDED AID FOR FLOOD AFFECTED PEOPLE OF BAGO REGION
Bago, MYANMAR, August 2018 – Tan Chong Motor (Myanmar) Co., Ltd. (“TCMM”), a subsidiary of Tan Chong Motor Holdings Bhd. (Malaysia) and the sole and exclusive distributor of Nissan vehicles in Myanmar, exercise their Corporate Social Responsibility through donations of basic necessity items to the flood affected areas.
Early this month, heavy monsoon rains have pounded the Bago Region, which resulted in Bago city being flooded after the heavy rain. As floodwaters rises, it has forced thousands from their homes in southeast Myanmar.
Kalayarni Ward, Kyuntharyar Ward, Zaiganaing South, Ottha Myothit Ward, Kyaukkyisu Ward and some low-lying areas are inundated with floodwater and 11 relief camps have reportedly been opened at monasteries to accommodate more than 4,000 affected flood victims in the city.
The compassionate Tan Chong Motor Myanmar (TCMM) has self-initiated to provide aid in the affected areas of Bago Region to further assist with the locals on-going flood relief efforts. The handover event sees Bago Region Chief Minister U Win Thein receiving donation items such as rice, pack noodles, sardine cans and isotonic drinks from Mr. Thambirajah, Director of TCMM.
Tan Chong Motor (Myanmar) Co., Ltd. which was established since May 2013 started the first Nissan 3S Outlet in Kamayut Township in Yangon offering full 3S services to the local consumers. In 2017, TCMM started operations on its SKD assembly plant to assemble the Nissan Sunny.
This year, TCMM has started constructing its new full CKD plant in Bago and upon completion, TCMM will commence its CKD operations in Myanmar and we believe this will contribute towards the Myanmar economy especially through the hiring of local talents and providing training to them and to prepare them for the future growth of the Myanmar market. This future plant will result in TCMM working closely with the government to contribute to the Myanmar economy by hiring local talent and provide training to prepare for the future growth of the Myanmar market.
