Project should be the main beneficiaries of this large-scale infrastructure development. The report calls for full transparency and local public consultation and participation in the project.
Salai Za Uk Ling added, "The benefits of this project should go to the least advantaged communities.
Unless and until the essential elements of full transparency, public consultation and participation, and accountability are met, the Kaladan Project should be suspended."
As said by the speakers, this report has also scrutinized a number of possible negative impacts that may give troubles to local people because of the Kaladan Project. Possible risks are likely to be happened such as the use of forced labor during project construction; land confiscation and forced eviction; disruption of and loss of livelihoods; increased presence of Burma Army troops; restrictions on freedom of movement and access to transportation; illegal taxation and extortion; pollution and environmental degradation; and violations of indigenous peoples' rights.
