Yadanabon cyber city project in progress
A cyber city project called Yadanabon in northern part of Myanmar, one of the country's infrastructures for ambitious development of information and communications technology (ICT), is in progress with its early phase under rapid implementation, local reports said.

Jungle areas have been cleared and upgraded with communication-and transport-related infrastructures being corner-stoned.

Located in hilly Pyin Oo Lwin near a highway and is 67 kilometers east of Mandalay, the second largest city of Myanmar, the emerging Yadanabon cyber city covers an area of 7,000 acres (2,835 hectares).
The cyber city project will include production of hardware used in mobile phones, planning of software and hardware programs, building of modern infrastructure such as teleport and incubation system which can receive international information network and reproduce it as well as some housing projects, according to the Ministry of Communications, Posts and Telegraphs.

Besides, the existing airport runway in Pyin Oo Lwin is being extended up to a length of 3,000 meters.

Pyin Oo Lwin stands a point through which a proposed natural gas pipeline, that will transmit Myanmar's gas from the Rakhine offshore area in the west to China's Yunnan province, passes in the future, local reports said.

To attract foreign investment in the aspects, Myanmar has offered to grant both foreign and local entrepreneurs to be engaged in ICT business in the cyber city project and separate plots will be allotted for foreign and local companies with equal rights to be offered to develop the silicon mountain town, according to the Computer Entrepreneurs' Association.

A latest move with regard to the ongoing cyber city project was that the ministry will purchase communication equipment from the Alcatel Shanghai Bell Co Ltd of China under a contract signed in Nay Pyi Taw on June 11, local media said. Xinhua
