I got a gift from MyanmarOneDirectory.com. I went to their website soft launching event yesterday in Yangon, and gave a speech of ‘Why businesses should go online’. There were over 60 people attended. Most of them are business owners. I’m sure that 70 percent of them are not starting their business online. MOD invited them because MOD wanted them to list their business in MOD website.
MOD is a join company between Myanmar and Malaysia association in Myanmar. They started their online directory website not too long ago and soft-launched yesterday. MD of the company said that he is preparing for the future. It’s nice and good thing to do. Have you ever think of the future? Thinking for the future will probably be for those who are doing great at the present time. For me, I think of future, but I invest everything for the present time. The reason foreign people got success in their business may be because of the fact that they are investing for the future.
MOD aimed to grow bigger within two or three years. Today we have over 4 million internet users in Myanmar. Most of them are just wondering in Facebook and Viber. When gonna they start being curious about other websites for education, information, etc? You may have that question. I believe it won’t be so far to wait.
We are seeing that many local and global tech companies are investing in Myanmar tech market. Some of them are doing mobile development business, but some do web development business. Some are running software development. There are lots of rooms in Myanmar which are empty and which need to get filled. What you gonna fill? It’s your decision. We chose IT and tech industry because we believe that it is the best way to develop the country.
