Welcome to the December 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 90,000 reported cases and almost 2,000 deaths. These terrible numbers almost doubled in a month. The curves show no sign of going down. We hope all of you are continuing to stay safe!
On the other hand, the economy is in dire need of support. We fully understand the value of information during these challenging times.
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 healthcare, export and mobile sectors in addition to COVID-19 related issues!
I’d recommend the interview with pharmaceutical giant DKSH’s Ankur Pandey, who is candid about what they want to see changed in Myanmar. Peter Li of Oppo talks about their winning strategy in capturing specific market segments. Mango Media’s CEO Aye Hnin Swe shares how she has managed to grow her organization through difficult times.
