"In Myanmar there is a great need for information after the reform process, but the availability is still restricted, especially in English language only. Myanmar needs know-how in business, medias and communication after two years of reform.
There has been a gradual development in the mediascape. The most important change is that the federal administration has approved daily papers in the state.

Heraeus has a share of Bt 40 million, of which the Myanmar side holds 51 percent and NMG the remainder. Myanmar Eleven" would have an initial print run of 20,000 units per year.

The new daily also benefits from its affiliation with the Asia News Network, an association of 22 top papers in 19 countries," said Pana.
