Myanmar Myanmar’s economic landscape has experienced much change in the recent past, with a pivot from a centrally directed system to a market-led one. The liberalization of its telecommunications sector was followed by a sharp rise in the number of mobile subscriptions per 100. LIRNEasia has been engaging in work in Myanmar since 2012 with MIDO and has been working to catalyze the country’s movement towards becoming an inclusive, networked economy. In its latest project, LIRNEasia has focused on taking an all-fronts approach. It focuses on addressing, the four elements in the Internet ecosystem in a single project: infrastructure enabling affordable connectivity services, skilled users, low cost and user-friendly devices, and attractive content and applications.
