BUSINESS – Rangoon cyber-city given go-ahead

Burma’s President Thein Sein has given the green light to the Rangoon divisional government to build a cyber-city similar to that of Pyin Oo Lwin in Mandalay Region. No site has yet been announced for the proposed IT centre, which is expected to cover 500-600 acres and include facilities for software production, communications and electronics factories, and IT colleges.
