How can we increase access to online services in Myanmar?

(31 March 2015) The few online services offered by the Myanmar government have yet to reach rural communities who have the most to gain because of their geographic isolation and limited resources.

But those communities tend to have limited access to technology and internet, and although some government information is currently available online at ministry websites, more usable and relevant e-government services have yet to kick in. Only a few ministries offer interactive services, like the Ministry of Commerce’s online applications for import and export licenses and the Ministry of Immigration’s e-visa services.

Beyond Access is providing support for local public libraries to take advantage of private sector services to better serve their communities.
