Google, Intel and Microsoft to open offices in Yangon, tech federation says

Google, Intel and Microsoft are preparing to open representative offices in Yangon this year, according to Myanmar Computer Federation chairman Khun Oo.

“The companies are looking for office locations,” he said, adding that “they will be very useful for Myanmar’s [information technology] sector”.

IT technician Aung Myo Lwin welcomed the news. “It’s a good sign for job opportunities for Myanmar people,” Aung Myo Lwin said.

The companies’ products are already distributed and sold here through authorised dealers, but the opening of offices signals greater interest in the IT market here and will benefit IT users, IT workers said.
