Myanmar is planning to transform Pyin Oo Lwin, the city of flowers in the northern part of the country, into a flower city of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), Xinhua reported on 30 October quoting state media.

The transformation will be made by using flower growing technique from the Netherlands, the report said, adding that growing quality flowers in Pyin Oo Lwin, Mandalay region, will reduce the inflow of flowers from other countries.

A private company will import quality flower seeds from the Netherlands to grow quality flower plants with the use of natural fertilizer in a bid to export flowers to the international markets, the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Irrigation was quoted as saying.
