The Ministry of Transport and Communications - MOTC is undertaking a phased approach to achieve its stated targets for the telecommunications sector. On October 8, 2013, the President of the Myanmar signed the Telecommunications Law, which repealed the Myanmar Telegraph Act, 1885, and the Myanmar Wireless Telegraph Act, 1934. Well planned implementation of Governmental decisions is leading to a change in Myanmar’s telecommunications market structure. Myanma Posts and Telecommunications - MPT’s long lasting monopoly is being replaced by a partially competitive market structure consisting of multiple operators (Ooreedoo, Telenor, MPT and  Mytel).

  3. support Board of Trustee of USF in  bidding  the  subsidies;  
  4. support  the   monitoring and evaluation  of results;  and
  5. support the dissemination of the results.
