Two new telecom licences have just been awarded in Myanmar. The new Telecom Law is now being treated in its final stage in Parliament and is expected to be passed soon. Foreign investments in both the telecom and ICT sectors are welcome, and more new market openings are expected. Beyond the two new telco licences awarded, more new licences for foreign joint ventures or foreign entities are in the pipeline. Amongst the wide array of services permitted, the two new operators will be allowed to offer mobile connections, fixed line services, IT and Internet offerings.
The need for upgrading internet/ICT infrastructure is urgent, and the demand for cloud computing for enterprises in all industries and in government is also urgent and huge. What are the new opportunities in the Myanmar new telecom ecosystem? What are the urgent infrastructural requirements needed to be fulfilled? What are the IT and telecom bottlenecks needed to be cleared for the fast rollout of Myanmar’s stock exchange this year?
With these developments, the 2nd INTO MYANMAR: Telecom and IT Global Summit 2013 seeks to promote further investments and economic growth in the newly economically liberalized Myanmar. Myanmar's decision makers, corporate leaders of Myanmar's telco, ICT, internet sectors are expected to grace this Summit together with senior management and decision makers from international telecom companies, service providers and equipment companies, broadcasting companies, satellite companies from Asia, Europe, North America, Australia and the Middle East. The Summit aims to provide a high-level strategic platform for foreign telecom operators, investors, equipment providers and technology leaders to meet with key decision-makers in Myanmar's public and private sectors, in addition, in providing the latest updates on key changes in Myanmar's potentially promising telecom and ICT sectors. This conference will be entirely focused on the latest updates on the investment opportunities in Myanmar’s telecom and ICT sector. The conference will cover a whole wide range of topics and issues that are related to telecom licenses, foreign investment in Myanmar’s telecom and ICT sector, new market openings, new licenses for foreign joint ventures and foreign entities, upgrading internet/ICT infrastructure, cloud computing, ISP licenses and other related infrastructural requirements.
