Indian support for IT in Burma

Indian-Burmese collaboration on information technology is set to ramp-up with a Mandalay IT institute, modeled on and implemented by the International Institute of Information Technology in Bangalore, the heartland of India’s booming IT industry. The partnership also aims to increase Burma’s skills capacity, with Burmese being sent to India to boost entrepreneurship and language skills. India’s ambassador to Burma has announced the twinning of Calcutta and Dagon universities, both specialising in IT, according to a report in state-run Global New Light of Myanmar.
