TOKYO, JAPAN – NTT Communications Corporation (NTT Com) announced today that its subsidiary NTT Communications (Thailand) Co., Ltd. has begun operating a branch office in Yangon, Myanmar. Working in collaboration with local carriers, the branch will provide ICT solutions that enable multinational companies to expand their operations reliably, flexibly and securely in Myanmar.
The branch is the first to be launched in Myanmar by a foreign telecommunications company. It is headed by Tsuyoshi Kawashima, who is concurrently president of NTT Communications (Thailand) and manager of its Phnom Penh and Vientiane branches. The branch office is located at # 1504, 15th Floor, Sakura Tower, 339, Bogyoke Aung San Road, Kyauktada Township, Yangon (tel. 951- 255-032).
NTT Com currently provides ICT solutions, including cloud, international and local networks, data centers, system integration and security, to multinational companies in the Greater Mekong Subregion, including Myanmar.
Myanmar has excellent growth potential due to its abundant workforce and natural resources. It has been emerging as a new market, especially since returning to civilian rule in March 2011.
A growing number of multinational companies are expanding their operations in the Greater Mekong Subregion, supported by ongoing improvement of infrastructure in the East-West Economic Corridor linking Vietnam, Laos, Thailand and Myanmar; the Kunming-Bangkok Expressway linking Thailand, Laos, Myanmar and Mainland China’s Yunnan Province; and the Southern Economic Corridor linking Vietnam, Cambodia and Thailand.
Multinational companies in the Greater Mekong Subregion are rapidly establishing production, distribution and sales systems, as well as working to secure business continuity resistant to natural disasters and political uncertainties, all of which are raising the demand for high-quality ICT services available throughout the region and beyond.
With the addition of the Myanmar Branch, NTT Com’s network of subsidiaries and offices has expanded to seven cities in five countries of the Greater Mekong Subregion, and 87 cities in 31 countries/regions of the world.
