Manila Water Enters New Frontier in Myanmar

01 April 2014
Research Note

On 18 March 2014, the Yangon City Development Committee (YCDC) of Myanmar, Manila Water Corporation (MWC), and Mitsubishi Corporation signed an MOU for a non-revenue water (NRW) reduction project. The project involves leak detection, pipe upgrades, and installation of meters and fee collection systems on a small scale. It will cost approximately US$1 million for the project and enable roughly 10,000 connections in central Yangon. MWC implemented similar measures in the East Manila city and seeks to replicate this experience in Yangon.


  • Myanmar steps forward with early signs of water sector reform implementation
  • NRW contract spearheads MWC´s broader ambitions in Myanmar
  • Mitsubishi adds NRW to growing Yangon presence
