In the summer of 1941, in order to increase the water transport capacity from Yangon to Bhamo via the Irrawaddy, the Yangon branch petitioned to strengthen Bhamo’s transport capacity. This plan was managed by C.P. in charge, built warehouses, increased vehicles, and planned to expand the establishment of Bhamo Transportation Office. Zhao Tingzhen, who was in the Singapore branch, would be appointed as the director of Bhamo Office. Zhao Tingzhen came to Yangon alone, because I was working under him in the two branches of Hong Kong and Singapore, so he directed me to Bhamo.
From June 1939 to October 1941, I had been doing import material card and registration work in the Transportation Bureau, until I went to Bhamo with Zhao Tingzhen. After my country’s Anti-Japanese War, the coast was lost and there was only Burma Highway from Yangon, Myanmar to Kunming, Yunnan.
