We have received the latest information of Myanmar from our local correspondent, Spica Services (S) Pte Ltd. As to the former relative information, please refer to Japan P&I News No.1108 and No.1112.


As of the early Morning of March 15th, all mobile data connections in Myanmar have been cut off. There is an expectation that land cable and home and office Wi-Fi connections may be terminated soon.


Currently, large areas of Yangon are under Martial Law, although Port areas are thus far exempt and appear to be operating normally. Note, however with the difficulty and danger evident in moving around the City, delays to operations are expected.
