The World Bank has approved funding to Myanmar to begin putting in place the foundation for e-government in the country, as part of a broader US$31.5 million project to reform Myanmar’s telecommunications sector.

 

The project will include developing the Myanmar National Portal which aims to provide citizens, businesses and visitors with a single online window for government information and services.

 

Over time the national portal will become a mobile friendly tool for users to find information in the Burmese language and in English.

 

Users will be able to provide suggestions and feedback about poor service delivery or incidents of corruption, and transact services in a safe and convenient electronic environment.

 

The project will also provide technical assistance to conduct a due diligence review of laws covering privacy, data protection, cyber crime, and access to and freedom of information. It will identify gaps in these laws and recommend a legal and regulatory framework consistent with international good practice.
