The Ayeyawady division in Myanmar occupies the Delta Region of the Ayeyawady River and borders Yangon and Bago as well as lying on the Bay Of Bengal. It is the most populous state of the Myanmar regions. A region which boasts mountains and beaches, as well as having the capital of Pathein which has various sites and temples as well as being famous for handmade parasols. referred to as the Pathein Thi. Pathein is also the largest port city outside of Yangon, and has both a large hospital and technical university.
The principal crop in Ayeyawady division is rice, but the region also produces fish, prawn, fish puree and fish sauce. 80% of the population in this division live in rural areas. However there is a huge problem with the deforestation of mangroves in the region causing river bank erosion in villages, which is why many NGO/ UN and NFP have projects there to plant mangroves, conserve the large marine eco system which is home to animals such as the Irrawaddy Dolphin.
The infrastructure in the Ayeyawady is poorly established, and this was not helped by Cyclone Nargis in 2008 which was the worst natural disaster in the history of Myanmar. The education and health statistics in this region are also lower on average than the rest of Myanmar, but hopefully this will be remedies in the coming years and more opportunities for those in the medical/ doctor/ nursing function as well as for those in education/ teaching and childcare.
Myanmar going through a time of rapid change, and aside from opportunities in NFP and the education/ training as well as medical/ hospital industries there will hopefully be a surge in infrastructure projects, which would create jobs for civil engineers and skilled trades/ construction workers.
Saying that, parts of the Ayeyawady Division has a burgeoning hospitality/ tourism industry, specifically its’ beach resorts on The Bay of Bengal (the largest bay in the world straddling South Asia and South East Asia). Both Ngwe Saung and Chaung Tha are popular tourist destinations that are easily accessible from Yangon. There is an abundance of beachside hotels, which provide opportunities for not just food/ beverage and catering professionals, but also those in administrative and managerial functions.
