Dear Readers,

Welcome to the August edition of Myanmar Insider, the only English-language business news journal designed especially for people who are keen to keep up with the critical business and economy issues of Myanmar. COVID-19 pandemic has not gone away in many parts of the world. So far, Myanmar is doing well with the protection and safety measures as evident in the low infection rates. International travel is still restricted and this may affect many businesses who depend on tourists and business travelers.

We hope all of you are continuing to stay safe. Myanmar Insider team strive to keep you well-informed wherever you are!
For this edition, you’ll find a mixture of news, in-depth interviews, special features and regular business columns on a wide range of issues covering telecom, mining, local economy and election related interviews! I’d recommend the interview with Ding Zhaoyi, CEO of Huawei Myanmar, who talks about his company’s vision and work practices. Also, since the elections will be held in November, MI team has also reached out to a number of politicians to hear about their visions and policies.

I hope you enjoy this issue and do let us know if there are any topics you’d like to see covered in the future.

Yours Sincerely,
Jeffrey Windsor
