News releases based on the LIRNEasia survey findings

We have isolated 3 stories which came out of our Myanmar teleuse baseline survey findings which we thought should be placed in the spotlight in the form of press releases. And they are as follows;

  1. Fewer women own phones compared to men.  But due to shared use, the usage of phones is not very different between men and women. 
  2. 99% of Ward/Village Leaders carry Mobile Phones. Only 89.2% of these are personal phones. Yet, this is the 2nd most favoured method of communicating with the people of his/her jurisdiction
  3. With 62% Smart Phone ownership, Myanmar’s Entry into Digital World will be Different to Other Asian countries

The Myanmar translations of the above are available here.
