Telecomasia.net quotes the New Light of Myanmar, government publication, to the effect that the law now has only one step more to go: Presidential approval.
Myanmar parliament has passed the telecom bill which will allow the nation’s mobile licensees to commence operation.
The Pyidaungsu Hluttaw (Union Assembly) approved the Communications Bill this week, state-run New Light of Myanmar said on Wednesday.
“As the Pyidaungsu Hluttaw approved the Communications Bill, [state-run telco] MPT and international operators can launch their operations,” the paper cites MP U Phone Myint Aung as saying. “They are waiting for this bill.”
He said the government plans to form a committee that will in future oversee the communications tasks of the nation.
