Apple to enter Myanmar

American technology firm Apple will allow a Myanmar company to act as its authorised dealer, reseller and service provider, a source said last week.

“Apple’s regional officers have held several meetings with Myanmar businesspeople – twice in Thailand and once in Yangon – and after one more meeting they will choose a partner,” said U Thaung Tin, chief executive officer of the KMD Computer Group.

He said KMD had discussed the possibility of being Apple’s agent in Myanmar during a meeting in Bangkok but had been informed that a final decision on the matter would not be made until later this month.
