Bringing its expertise in information and communications technology (ICT) as well as social infrastructure, NEC Corporation sees great potential in Myanmar, which has undergone rapid economic growth in recent years.
NEC's more than 35 years of experience with Myanmar's communications infrastructure, including telephone switchboards, wireless equipment, satellite ground stations and broadcasting systems, has set a strong foundation to continue its support of the country's technological progress.
"There is tremendous growth potential in Myanmar and this is an opportune moment for NEC to contribute to the country's IT needs. NEC will focus on providing key international communication networks, such as submarine cable systems, ICT infrastructure for industrial parks, disaster prevention systems, security systems, e-government systems and mass-market IT solutions," said Mr Takayuki Morita, senior vice president, NEC Corporation.
