BBC Office for Burma
I got messages this week-end that I never thought I would listen to. Myanmar's Ministry of Information said that the BBC, along with three other multinational intelligence companies, has been officially authorized to open a press office in Burma, also known as Myanmar. Nearly exactly one year ago I told you that the BBC World Newspaper will be broadcasted in Burma.
The BBC was the first multinational communications organization to launch audible reports on cell phone in Burma this year. We' re the only global channel to offer text messages and sports newsletters within Burma. The BBC's Burma BBC broadcasts are now on FM in Burma. The BBC Myanmar, a ministry available since 1940, now has a valued public of 8.4 million, nearly a fourth of the people.
Independant research shows that the BBC has become the most trustworthy channel in Burma. Burma's authorities have taken notice of the BBC. Deputy Information Minister U Ye Htut recognised the BBC as a "role model" for its journalistic standards and said that this had made the BBC a top order of business for the office opening.
BBC's Media Action charitable organization is working to educate the next generations of Burma's media, which includes state broadcasters, and provides not only technological but above all educational editing on the BBC's BBC value of independence. Without being afraid or favored, we will talk about the country's shifting face, and we have made this clear to the Myanmaris.
Our intention is to open our office next year. The BBC has many offices around the globe.
