News : ICT Zone Planned for Thanlyin
Thanlyin, Myanmar, May 5, 2015 -- The Myanmar Computer Federation (MCF) is scoping out a site in Yangon’s eastern Thanlyin township for an ICT centre, according to U Zaw Min Oo, secretary general of the MCF.
The federation is currently in discussions with potential land owners, looking to emulate the success of MICT park in Hlaing township.
"We estimate the ICT zone will be finished by the end of the year. The ICT zone is to collect together the IT sector," said U Zaw Min Oo.
MCF president U Khun Oo said there will be many work opportunities on the site for ICT professionals after it is up and running.
U Zaw Min Oo said the site is slated to sit on up to 300 acres, eventually including a business zone, training centre, call centre and a number of other facilities. It hopes to eventually have tens of thousands of ICT professionals at the site, he added.
Industry professionals say they welcome efforts to add more places for ICT businesses to work.
"MCF should be developing more than one ICT park," said U Zaw Zaw Myo Lwin, CEO of Yangon Heardz Media and Business solution.
The existing MICT park in Hlaing township was begun in 2001, with a consortium of 50 private companies.
