Myanmar Police Visit Mae Fah Luang Foundation To Against Drugs

Myanmar national police chief visited northern Thailand to meet with Thailand’s Office of the Narcotics Control Board (ONCB)  and  Mae Fah Luang Foundation Secretary-General.

The Myanmar drug programme chief visited the foundation’s Doi Tung Development Project to consider using it as a model for an alternative sustainable project in Shan State along the Thai-Myanmar border.

The first six months of the process will create understanding among ethnic minorities in Myanmar and to foster a positive attitude about sustainable living with the forest in their land.

Thai officials in both agencies will assist in lifting the quality of life for local residents, building a local heath station, and promoting good livelihoods without relying on drugs.

Guidelines for planting replacement crops in opium growing areas will be provided by the Doi Tung Development Project.

Representatives from ONCB and the Mae Fah Luang Foundation will be discussing with representatives from Myanmar at Shan State’s Tha Chi Lek to agree to terms and agreements on which areas in Myanmar to be applied with the project.
