JAKARTA, March 17 (Xinhua) -- Indonesia plans to open a hospital and apply community development program in Myanmar's Rakhine State, as part of its humanity assistance to the restive region, officials said Friday.
Deputy Foreign Affairs Minister A.M. Fachir said the Indonesia-initiated hospital would be built in city of Mrauk U, Rakhine State where most of internally displaced people sheltered in.
"Besides the hospital, we also planned to build a market which is expected to inclusively facilitate trade of staple needs for locals regardless their different religious backgrounds. So we have moved from sending relief aid to rehabilitation efforts through community development program," Fachir said.
He was speaking on the sidelines of a meeting in the vice presidential palace to discuss Indonesia's assistance to Rakhine State.
Indonesia previously sent relief aids in January this year for the people suffering from the conflict in Rakhine State.
