Telecoms & IT

Myanmar Telecoms & IT

The expansion of Myanmar’s telecoms market continues to live up to its early promise, with industry reform viewed as the most significant economic success since the military ceded power in 2011. In the relatively short period of time since, the sector has become an important enabler of socio-economic development, attracting billions of dollars in investment, fostering the emergence of tech start-ups and connecting rural communities to the outside world for the first time. Liberalisation has also seen the IT industry expand at a considerable pace. While it still has a lot of catching up to do with regional peers, local businesses and communities are rapidly adopting new technologies, and the potential for expansion into to new economic segments is clear. This chapter contains interviews with Daniel Michener, CEO, Burst Myanmar; and Liman Zhang, CEO, Huawei Myanmar.
