Dagang Net helps Myanmar jump-start e--commerce
Kuala Lumpur, Nov 19, 2001
Dagang Net Technologies Sdn Bhd (DNT), an e-commerce service provider and
e-government pioneer in Malaysia, plans to use its extensive expertise to
help Myanmar jumpstart its e-commerce implementation.
DNT's chief executive officer, Hazree Mohd Turee said the company's
experience in doing the same for Malaysia in the early 90s would be a
definite advantage. He said the company has the necessary tools to help
fast track the integration of Myanmar into the global economy using proven
"In doing so, we are answering the government's call to foster closer
cooperation between Asean members by sharing knowledge and expertise," he
said in a statement here today.
Hazree had a briefing with Brigadier General Thein Swee, chairman of the
e-application committee, e-national task force of Myanmar.
In the statement, General Thien was quoted as saying that Myanmar's
e-commerce iniatiative was still in infancy.
He said in its maiden effort towards e-commerce, Myanmar planned to
electronically link wholesale markets around the country to help farmers
market their produce more effectively.
"Information on the type of produce, the volume available and the prices
being qouted could be effectively shared by the farmers and brokers to spur
e-commerce. It is essential for Myanmar due to our geographically large
area," he said.
General Thien said the implementation of a trade facilitation system
similar to the ones developed by DNT and implemented at Port Klang, KLIA
and other entry and exit points would be the eventual goals.
"We need to prepare our ports for growth and trade volume. What DNT has
done for Malaysia is very impressive as we also believe that e-commerce is
more than just about technology. It is ability to facilitate
inter-organisational cooperation," he said.
