Welcome to the November 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 remains a major threat to Myanmar and its people with more than 50,000 reported cases and over 1,000 deaths. This did not stop the MI team from working as we fully understood the value of information during these challenging times. We hope all of you are continuing to stay safe!
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, transportation, fintech, COVID-19 & economy and defence issues!
I’d recommend the interview with Telenor’s Asia chief Jørgen C. Arentz Rostrup who is candid about the need to set up an independent regulator for the Telecom sector in Myanmar. Brad Jones of Wave Money talks about their inspiring achievements in the Fintech sector. The article about forgotten victims of COVID-19 might touch your hearts if you are a pet lover!
Please let us know if there are any topics you’d like to see covered in the future.
