KDDI Brings Japanese Telecom Services Tech to Myanmar

Myanmar MPT staff in first graduating class of personnel training program

TOKYO, 4 July 2018 -- (ACN Newswire) -- KDDI CORPORATION is implementing telecommunications business operations in Myanmar, together with Sumitomo Corporation and Myanmar Posts and Telecommunications (MPT).

KDDI has been working to improve the quality of telecommunications services and service development capabilities in Myanmar since July 18, 2017, carrying out long-term training programs in Japan to improve the technological skills of MPT personnel[1]. On June 29, 2018, the program finished its first year, producing its first graduating class, the members of which will now return to Myanmar.

As smartphones come into widespread use in Myanmar, demand for social networking services (SNS), video sharing services and content use is increasing. MPT has been offering LTE+ high-speed data transmission service[2] since May 2017, and began offering a reward program[3] in May 2018 as part of plans for ongoing service upgrades.

In addition to telecommunications service know-how such as network planning, design, construction, testing and operations, students of KDDI's program have learned how to devise and propose strategies in other service fields, such as payments and contents. Returning to Myanmar, they look forward to being assigned by MPT to practical positions where they will be able to put the lessons and experiences of this program to work.

The program is scheduled to accept four new trainees for a second course of study to begin this fall.

As a company that always strives to offer exciting new ideas, KDDI will continue to work together with Sumitomo and MPT to increase customer satisfaction in Myanmar by promoting the integration of telecommunications and life design. It is our way of contributing to the development of Myanmar's economy and industry, and improvement of the lives of the people of Myanmar by creating new experience value.

About the MPT employee long-term training program

After approximately 200 applications are received from MPT employees, a written test and interviews with directors are administered within MPT to select four candidates (two from business departments and two from technical departments) with corporate leadership potential. Based on MPT's needs, KDDI then administers its own originally designed training program.

- Joint training: Academic studies including an overview of KDDI's business activities, business skills, Japanese language fundamentals, etc.
- Business training: Practical training and applied study in detail, including visits to each of KDDI's business departments
- Technical training: Training in the complete cycle of planning, design, construction, testing and operation in line with a theme chosen by the trainee
