The Union of Myanmar Federation of Chambers of Commerce and Industry (UMFCCI) and US Information and Communication Technology (US ICT) Council for Myanmar will continue working together to develop Myanmar’s digital economy. The UMFCCI said the cooperation will ensure Myanmar does not fall behind when it comes to the digital economy sector.
The UMFCCI vice chair said that the development of their digital economy is important. They will feel the effects if they are left behind by other countries. This is why they will cooperate (with the US ICT Council for Myanmar) last year and this is the second singing following the expiration of their initial one-year term.
The UMFCCI and the US ICT Council for Myanmar signed a new memorandum of understanding (MoU) on January 5. They will also cooperate in all sectors related to IT. The US ICT will provide technical and financial assistance though it is still not known how much funding the US ICT will provide. They will implement digital economy for the industrial and education sectors as well. The current Myanmar digital economy landscape has improved a lot of compared to the past.
