Tala Mon Company is well-Known in Mon State. They run different businesses which include an express bus transport from Mon State to Rangoon.

Nai Banyar San, who invested hotel Company is based in Singapore also participated at the meeting with Ohn Myint.

The Tala Mon company intend to set up the sea port first, and to later develop surrounding infrastructure. The company intend to build a road linking with Three Pagodas Pass which links Thailand where all trade can then pass from Mon State to Thailand.

The company will also plan to meet leaders from the New Mon State Party. The discussion will focus on the development and effective running of that particular economic zone near Three Pagodas Pass along on the Thai-Burma border.

“Their idea is to give jobs to Mon workers who are currently working in Thailand. In the future, they will not have a need to go to Thailand for work. They can simply be based in Three Pagodas Pass,” said Nai Soe Myint.
