Where Industry Leaders Meet

Talk Satellite and CommuniCast Myanmar are delighted to announce the second annual Myanmar Satellite Forum, to be held on 18th November 2015 at Myanmar Event Park, Yangon. With a population exceeding 60 million people and an anticipated annual GDP growth rate of 7.2% through to 2022. A poor infrastructure will however hold back on the available opportunities; in particular the telecommunications sector has been identified for immediate prioritization. The Myanmar Satellite Forum is a uniquely inclusive platform to address issues of urgent concern to government, enterprise, and consumer entities. The Myanmar Satellite Forum 2015 offers the most influential networking opportunity for the International Satellite Industry to best forge important relationships with the domestic Myanmar delegation.

Deputy Minister, Ministry of Communications and Information Technology Myanmar,  H.E U Thaung Tin, said: “The broadcasting industry is moving very fast. From an economic, commercial, national prestige and national security point of view, everything points towards satellite and the demand is increasing. We have now given the satellite project top priority on our agenda and are working on getting this set up in the near future.

Satellite Sovereignty was a key theme from last year’s event which was host to the country’s first Myanmar Satellite Forum, and the announcement of a new broadcasting law is sure to stimulate the debate at the event’s return on 18 November 2015

“We have done well in terms of telecom liberalisation so far but the journey has just begun. We now have to kick momentum and fulfill the people of Myanmar’s desires and expectations. People are now asking for the quality of service and more choices and we have to deliver that,” he added.
