Power and energy sector plays vital role in Myanmar’s reform
Posted on : 17 Jan, 2013

 

The power sector plays an essential role in Myanmar’s economic reform. The initial assessment by the Asian Development Bank (ADB) states,

 

“Electrification is an urgent requirement, without which whole areas of the country will be severely hampered in their efforts to advance economically. Social progress also depends on electrification, without which health, education, and other essential services inevitably suffer.”

 

Myanmar holds high potential in the energy sector as the country has plenty of natural and energy resources, varying from oil and gas to hydro and geothermal power.

 

However, Myanmar has its own limitations as it lacks in capital, regulatory framework, qualified personnel and planning. International investments are hence welcomed and encouraged to help bring resources, capital, technology and planning together.

 

Officially hosted by the Ministry of Electric Power, the inaugural Myanmar Power Summit promises detailed updates on Myanmar’s power and energy sector, varying from legal and finance developments to strategies and power projects.

 

For more information on the summit and registration procedures, please contact Ms. Grace at grace@cmtsp.com.sg or Tel. 65 6346 9147.

Private firms invited as key players and solution providers in electricity generation in Myanmar
Posted on : 31 Oct, 2012

 

Days of unstable electricity supply may soon be a thing of the past for Myanmar. As part of its reform and to allay discontentment that escalated to demonstrations in the streets against the constant insufficient electricity supply, power shortages and cuts, Myanmar is inviting private companies to invest in power generation for various regions of the country.

 

The move to have more private firms in supplying electricity and the upgrading of electricity infrastructure points towards social developments that will positively affect the economic and overall growth of the country.

 

Just this October, Pacific Company joined the ranks of other private firms with a forecasted investment plan of up to K2 billion to salvage and improve the country’s electrical infrastructure. During the period of the five-year contract with the Mandalay Region government, Pacific will see to the supply of electricity and the upgrading of critical electricity infrastructures.

 

As Mandalay Region Minister for Electric Power and Industry, Dr Myint Kyu, said,

 

“About 20 percent of power generated is lost in distribution because of a lack of transformers and worn-out power line cables.

 

“The company will change the cables, build substations and install new transformers. Only then will the lost power be retrieved and the state will get some more revenue.”

 

With more stable infrastructures, networks and facilities, Myanmar is set to attract more investors and businesses over the next few years. For those wishing to know more about business experiences and investment opportunities as well as first-hand information and updates on the power industry in Myanmar,  the inaugural Myanmar Power Summit  to be held on the 28-31 January in Yangon, is where they can get it all.
