Currently, Myanmar has banned international flights until mid-June, so developers cannot visit Myanmar at all. It is also powerless to seek out the location required for a tender or to make an investment decision. In the bidding documents obtained by the author, a series of conditions are also listed, which are somewhat unbelievable. For example, developers are required to provide evidence of land acquisition at the proposed site for each solar power plant when bidding. Nishant Choudhary, a partner of DFDL law firm, told
Myanmar media that it whatsapp database is very difficult for developers to obtain evidence of land acquisition in various provinces and cities in Myanmar before the deadline, that is, within a month. In addition, the power station must start operation within 180 days of the government issuing the letter of acceptance, otherwise it will be fined K150,000 (about NT$3,198) per MW for one day of delay. The document also states that although bidders can propose transactions in US dollars, the government will pay for electricity in kyat, which will be converted based on the central bank exchange rate on the date of payment. Experts worry that because there is not enough time to bid, companies will rush to obtain evidence of land acquisition, increasing the risk of land grabbing.
