7 Private Sector  In Myanmar, huge discrepancies in ICT knowledge between government IT personnel and private IT developers  Government agencies rely on private IT consultancies and developers to advise them on trends, strategies, requirements  IT companies usually do complete system analysis of the departments’ needs and submit project plans  Some projects are operated by private companies for a period of time before handing over fully

8 E-Services (E-Government)  Much public service provided by government, when official procedures require it, e- government services are accepted and used widely

12 Online Education / Master Degrees 2 universities are now offering online classes, and they are successful

13 Moving Forward  Pilot projects are evidence of Myanmar government’s awareness and willingness to implement e-government  Internet Penetration is the single most important factor  At least 20% of population and 75% of government offices need to get connected  Need quick, affordable and efficient methods of achieving the above goal (WiMax, Wifi, GPRS, 3G, ADSL, etc.)
