InfosysInfosys, India’s second-largest IT services company, has reportedly bagged a consulting project from the Myanmar government to develop a strategy for using information technology to improve governance efficiency.

In November 2013, Myanmar’s pro-democracy leader and Nobel laureate Daw Aung San Suu Kyi visited Infosys headquarters. During her interaction with senior company officials, Suu Kyi discussed on how technology could play a role in the Myanmar’s development. Infosys had also committed to undertake a six-month training programme for 100 engineering students from Myanmar.

In India, Infosys is working with the government in various IT modernisation initiatives. This includes managing the income tax  department’s central processing center and postal department’s IT modernisation initiatives, according to the Business Standard.

Myanmar is looking to bolster its investment ecosystem and in the process is wooing global technology companies. The country is taking the help of the US Agency for International Development (USAID) to attract global technology majors such as Cisco, Google, HP, Intel and Microsoft.

Last year, Microsoft had announced to enter Myanmar with a local company, Myanmar Information Technology (MIT). Besides, Cisco has announced to open networking academies with an aim of training the locals before establishing a presence in the country.

According to research firm IDC, the IT spends in Myanmar is estimated to reach $234 million by 2016, with a compound annual growth rate of 16 per cent between 2011 and 2016.
