Monday 21 January 2013 | 11:55 CET | News
Myanmar's fresh start in liberalising its state-dominated telecommunications sector has captured the attention of Thai telecommunication firms, reports The Bangkok Post. The Myanmar government has published a notice inviting investment proposals from local and foreign companies for nationwide telecommunication services. Wichian Mektrakarn, chief executive of Advanced Info Service (AIS), said the company, through its parent InTouch, plans to expand its telecommunication business in Myanmar, especially mobile infrastructure and telecommunication-related services. AIS is preparing to propose potential investment projects to the Myanmar government this month, he said. Watchai Vilailuck, president of Samart, said his company is also studying the possibility of investment in Myanmar telecommunication services. Two companies that can fulfill the criteria to provide nationwide telecommunication service will be given licences by June this year, Soe Naing, an assistant director in Myanmar's telecommunications department, told AP.
