Phandeeyar, together with Myanmar ICT for Development Organization (MIDO), Engage Media and Myanmar Center for Responsible Business (MCRB) with the support of The Embassy of Sweden hosted Myanmar’s first ever digital rights forum on 14 and 15 December, 2016. We are happy to say that it was such a success!

In addition to involvement from several stakeholders from the industry such as local and international tech companies, government, media and civil society organisations, the two-day event generated LOTS of media interest.
