Myanmar is Readying for E-Commerce

Singapore, 20 November 2018 -

Myanmar is catching up with its ASEAN neighbours as its large, young population are pushing for increased adoption of ICT. Public-private dialogue on the digital economy has flourished and bodes well for the future. The country's Ministry of Commerce is committed to making e-commerce a powerful engine for economic growth, inclusive trade and job creation in Myanmar. Recently the government has granted permission to a total of seven new registered express delivery providers to carry out operations in the country.

Rapid internet penetration and the emergence of new payment gateways, mobile payment providers and new start-ups will inevitably boost retail e-commerce in Myanmar.

Magenta Global Singapore will host the 2nd Emerging Asia E-Commerce Summit in Yangon, Myanmar. This timely Summit will be co-located with the 10th Mobile Money & Financial Inclusion Summit 2019 to bring a robust two days of industry insights, best practices and technology showcases. These co-located events will be taking place in Yangon from the 26th to 27th of February 2019.

The speaker line-up will include shop.com.mm, BarLoLo.com, rgo47, WaveMoney and many more.

The 2019 Summit will be discussing the future of e-commerce in emerging Asian cities as well as insights for Myanmar’s e-commerce market. For e-commerce to thrive, the key pillars of platform, logistics and payments are required. Where is Myanmar currently on these fronts compared to other regional players? What are the trends and developments in e-commerce logistics, distribution and fulfilment for domestic as well as cross-border retail and trade? What are the ground realities of operating in different segments of the e-commerce eco-system? What are the developing technology options to deliver practical and robust network for deeper customer experiences? The Summit will also deliberate on the China influence and its impact, along with how local platforms position themselves to prepare for the next wave of development.

Maggie Tan, CEO of the event organizer Magenta Global, commented: "We know how difficult it is for local entrepreneurs and SMEs to grow a business in today’s fast-changing and competitive environment, especially in today’s new retail world. We hope that this Summit will provide the platform where vital information and experience sharing will empower and enable businesses as they embark on their journey in the world of e-commerce and the new retail innovations."

China and Myanmar Agree to $1.3 Billion Port Project

The government Myanmar has reached a final, scaled-down agreement with Chinese engineering conglomerate CITIC for an expanded seaport at Kyaukpyu, on the Bay of Bengal. The framework agreement calls for a $1.3 billion terminal with two deep water berths, and is much smaller than an earlier version of the plan, which would have seen the construction of a $10 billion port and free zone complex.
Negotiations over the port have been under way for years, and Myanmar's government ultimately decided to proceed with a de-scoped version of the project due to concerns over excessive foreign debt. Comparable infrastructure investments in Sri Lanka and Pakistan have left those nations indebted to Chinese banks; in Sri Lanka's case, the underperforming Chinese-built port of Hambantota was eventually transferred to a Chinese firm in order to pay back loans.
China will finance 70 percent of the port's construction and Myanmar will cover the balance. An earlier version of the proposal called for a Chinese share of 85 percent.
Set Aung, the lead negotiator for Myanmar on the Kyaukpyu project, told media that the construction will proceed by phases so that the  economic viability of each step can be assessed. When fully built out, the port should generate about $3.2 billion in annual economic activity, according to Chinese state outlet Global Times. It will provide an Indian Ocean terminus for a road and rail connection across Myanmar to the Chinese border, which will allow China-bound cargoes from the west to bypass the Strait of Malacca.
The new deepwater terminal at Kyaukpyu will add to China's presence at the port, where China National Petroleum Corporation already operates a large crude oil terminal. The terminal feeds a transnational pipeline that carries the crude to Kunming, in China's Yunnan Province.
