Just a while ago, I read facebook update from one of my friends who is reporter from well-known journal in Myanmar. Right now, she is attending ASEAN Summit at Bali, Indonesia. ASEAN Summit this year is quite popular as of Myanmar has proposed itself to be Chair of ASEAN in 2014. Not only within region, but also the whole world is keeping an eye on Myanmar whether is there true changes leading to national reconciliation and political reconstruction to democratization.

Today, there is the meeting of foreign ministers from ASEAN countries, it was agreed for Myanmar to be named as Chair of ASEAN 2014. It is really a great news and a lot of people are also waiting for this news long time ago.

After getting agreement to be ASEAN Chair 2014, then Myanmar has to start preparing for all the necessities to be able to hold general meetings and several other activities in terms of responsibilities of ASEAN Chair. Positively, it will be creating several employment opportunities for local talents and progress in terms of business development will be followed.

Therefore, it is like a notice for local talents to get prepared for upcoming business opportunities. For the time being, I would like to note today as a day of happiness with regards of hearing this news.

Myanmar Amazing Expo 2011

On 12th of this month, I happened to visit Myanmar Amazing Expo 2011 in Thuwanna Stadium. As per media, this year is re-birth of such mega expos in Myanmar. There has been big gap of such Expos in this recent years. Myanmar Amazing Expo was emphasizing on building construction and decoration materials. However, the display items ranging from personal electronics gadgets to heavy trucks. If we were to say that frequent extravaganza Expos are signs of the business development in a country, we can says that economy in Myanmar is developing progressively.

Let's have a look into Expo!


Huge billboards were attracting audiences to the expos on both sides of entrance.

Yangon : Notice For Power Black Out

As I have written here, it is in the so called UN-predictable thing that when electricity will be black out in Yangon, Myanmar in the past. Most of us surprise that other countries, like Singapore has better advance notice systems on such thing. We did experience more efficient customer service standards when we were been in abroad.

Now, (I don’t believe this is first time announcement issued, however this is first time I ever read on newspaper). Today newspaper got the advance notices to customers of Ministry of Electricity No. (2). It said that there will be upgrading of equipments in sub-stations. It will happen in between 0800 hrs to 1500 hrs of 8th Oct 2011 (Saturday).

Though it is not the best performance in customer service standards, but we can said that they are improving their services. Hopefully, there will be progressively improving their customer services and one day, we can say that ours are the best not only in the regional but also all around the world.
