Japanese telecommunications giant KDDI Corporation has announced that it will open an office in Burma’s commercial hub, Rangoon, joining a recent wave of international ICT and telecoms firms lining up to invest in the nascent Southeast Asian democracy.

Under the working name of KDDI Myanmar, an affiliate company has been jointly established by KDDI Japan and its subsidiary in Singapore, and becomes the company’s 100th overseas site.

KDDI runs a range of services involving mobile telephones, Internet and digital TV, but says its remit in Burma, officially known as Myanmar, is strictly for serving businesses.

The Tokyo-based firm said it aims to provide “Japanese-quality” network and infrastructure support services for companies in Burma.

Japanese firm NTT Com became the first Japanese telecommunications firm to open in the country when it announced a venture in October, and it is offering similar infrastructure and IT services.

German firm Rocket Internet launched three Web services in Burma in July.
