GOVERNMENT ENCOURAGEMENT AND INITIATIVE

IT will change every country’s development opportunities

Myanmar Computer Science Development Act was
promulgated on September 30th 1996

Myanmar Computer Development Council, the highest
policy making body was duly established in October 1998.

the Myanmar Computer Professional Association (MCPA),
the Myanmar Computer Industry Association (MCIA) and
