Inclusive Growth to Help Communities Live “Better Lives”

Monday, 01 December 2014

At Myanmar Wanbao, we are committed to a good relationship with the communities that we live amongst.

This relationship begins with meeting our legal obligations, and grows from there to consideration of how we can assist and support the villagers, to live, as President U Thein Sein has put it, "better lives".

We have noticed that some members of the media seem confused about land compensation, subsidy, and the contribution payment. Accordingly, we would like to explain this in detail and we hope you have patience to read to the end.

Social Risk Management:A Social License for Responsible Mining

Thursday, 29 May 2014


Wanbao management has been well aware that social risk management is the social license to responsible mining operation. That's why Wanbao volunteers for community and social development reach out for the villagers surrounding the Letpadaung mine to listen to their needs and try to address their concerns. Over 20 villages have been visited since May 12, 2014. This is the continuous village consultations done by us following the similar activities respectively in March and September 2013.




On the Job Trainees: Wanbao’s Statement

Wednesday, 28 May 2014




The On the Job Training Program was initiated to help relieve the jobs problem surrounding the mine as well as build the necessary skills which would assist villagers to acquire working positions during the production phase of the mine. Wanbao wanted to hire as many people as possible going forward from the impacted villagers but the company had identified early that individuals who did not have the requisite skills to help them benefit from its construction phase. So we initiated a 5- month On the Job Training Program to address elements of this problem. The aim was that, as soon as the trainees completed their training and passed their tests successfully, they would then be given a contract and join Wanbao's labour pool starting at Grade 9, with $USD120/month starting salary, and enjoy the same benefits including promotions etc as all other Wanbao staff.
