The Myanmar Times on the road every day
Myanmar Times staff said that a print shop for the Rangoon New South Dagon paper will be established in Rangoon's New South Dagon with Australian engineers and a reporter education program has been established. One Rangoon reporter said the 20-page paper will be in Burmese and the first issue is scheduled for May this year after the Burmese vote.
"You' ve been hiring newsmen for the paper for two month. Myanmar Times, if sanctioned by the Myanmar authorities, will be the first ever personal paper to appear in Burma every day since General Ne Win's junta took over the country's leadership in 1962.
Burma's papers go out every day, but the change to observation may be in the Nieman Journalism Laboratory.
22 March 2013, 1:15 pm A growth-oriented information eco-system has some basic issues to clarify - fiscal, regulatory and editorial. Over the past 50 years, Myanmar reporters have escaped to the Thai and Indian border, where they have provided some of the only insight into the violent activities of their regime that have been available to everyone - both inside and outside Burma.
Prodemocracy activists escaped to Thailand or Europe, where they sent back to Burma via television, TV and printed papers. One can almost forgive the chance observers of modern Myanmar for not noticing this past. Fortune 500 customers are advised by highly employed advisors about a "greenfield" land where over 90 per cent of the 60 million population have no cell phone, no web services or banking account.
The same dynamic pace of economic expansion that is affecting the entire economy is having the same impact on the entire print and online industry as on everyone else. The exiled find themselves in the land they were chasing just a few years ago while balancing actual commercial choices in expectation of the ten million Burmese who are to be rewired with Internet-connected telephones by 2015.
Current Moroccan privately-owned publications are planning their own expansion. Take Kyaw Zaw Moe, the publisher of The Irrawaddy, one of Burma's most beloved exiled sites. He escaped Myanmar when he was set free and rejoined his twin brothers Aung Zaw, who founded Irrawaddy in Thailand. That' not the Myanmar he knew a few years ago.
First and foremost, though, his main concern is pressure. In fact, in Myanmar, media businesses are getting ready for a new day in the world of Myanmar - the "daily era" as it is known. As of April 1, newsmagazines - in Myanmar known as" Journals" and previously issued in large, hardcover formats on a regular basis - can begin publication every day under a less strict grading system than in the past.
Information Matrix CEO Thaung Su Nyein, who produces several of Myanmar's highest-circulation magazines, said he expected the newspaper's total number of copies to match the weekly's within a year, but that it will take some catching up in terms of revenues. Intelligence agencies are also in a battle to find newsmen.
Another Myanmar Times journalist, another of the country’ major publishers, told me that there is no media based on story telling and report research in Myanmar. The Myanmar Times takes a photo at the beginning of this year of a count down in the Myanmar Times flick for the anticipated start as a newspaper.
Exiled publishing houses that try to get home have more workloads. Concerned that if he does not get into the right kind of deal with the right people, Aung Zaw is reluctant to give up supporting an organisation like the National Endowment for Democracy, an organisation financed by the US administration that in the past has blunted the conditions under which it has supported him.
Burma's first television and broadcasting station, the Peace ful Voice of Burma, was established with the support of the Moroccan authorities and is in a similar state. Printed magazines can still be found on almost every nook and cranny in central Yangon. Thus, far from ushering in the "end of censorship" and a new gold age for the Myanmar newspaper, the transition to the newspaper is just a hub in a wider series of transition points that define the new state of the Myanmar audio-visual world.
Also with its notable turn in recent years, the land still finds its way. Myanmar's major transformation in the Myanmar press is not so different from other states that have gone through it. Not constrained by unsurfaced streets or bad web infrastructures, mobility is like most individuals accessing the web, and softcover has become at a rapid rate where users and mass media are focusing their attentions.
Recognizing that weeklies undermine the week's ban by keeping their online sites and sites up to date throughout the week rather than just every one. The exiled are free of the law of censure. But with Myanmar's demographic development and weak infrastructures, it will be moving and the massive spread of the web - with an anticipated 900 per cent growth in the next two years to 80 per cent of the population - will lead to the most tragic changes, as all of a sudden billions of people outside the big city will be able to better co-ordinate and better interact with the city.
Developing a multifaceted and all-encompassing on-line eco-system, which is only now emerging in Myanmar, is seen as the point at which the new medium legislation is being most rigorously debated. Prepare the audio-visual world. Organisations say they have a few good things to do to attract new wireless customers, such as an SMS-based messaging system and the extension to an established dial-in messaging system.
Use the call feature to call a number to listen to a brief sequence of message shots of the night - almost like on the air. These are seen as a means of attracting people, whether in the countryside or in the city, who are out of printing sales or want a different price schedule.
"Not only do we need a one-sided connection," says Aye Chan Naing, editor-in-chief of the Dvo. of Burma. Exiled gateways were looking for a partner in January after HTC introduced the first smart phone with Burma's voice on it. It is the concept that new telephones with a" reader" preinstalled arrives to read their messages and communicate with their mobile phone's publicity.
There could be no greater distinction between such a system and the Myanmar audio-visual world. Exiled people work across borders and text messages are quite costly. However, for some period of clampdown, the small rebellion of the Myanmar press to adjust to the rifts in the government's information bloc.
As part of the Myanmar news story, strategy experimenting has its origins in the exiled mediums that have been testing different formats and printing layout to allow fast folding of papers during a quest. Myanmar Times has over 73,000 people on its Facebook page, even though it only has 12,000 people visiting its website every single month.
It is also used by the heads of ministries who collect subscriptions and search through message posts to get immediate feedbacks from citizens on the reform. One final topic is that the focus is certainly on expanding both among exiled and local groups, as well as the fact that the Myanmar audio-visual community is highly competitive and club-oriented.
This is a series of "cronies" with verticalised monopoly positions and strong ties in state-owned publishing companies. Competitors will certainly be tough, and some say that the present climate, in which tens of printed magazines operate, could decline to four or five in a few years, if the readers consolidated.
In my brief period of attendance at the Myanmar Times, one of the more autonomous periodicals, I experienced a property struggle in the editorial office that expanded into a material clash and 30 minutes of banging and screaming. This controversy resulted from the politicised detention of an editorial journalist a few years ago and from previous legislation on the newsmedia.
In every instant, not far from your location, rebel forces striving for regional autonomy encounter the army, telcos, international managers, justice departments and exiled groups that are steering the trial towards a new set of laws.
