The Ministry of Information launched the Online News Portal and Digital Newspaper yesterday, stepping into the electronic media world.
In his opening address at the ceremony to officially launch Myanmar Digital News (MDN), a joint venture between the Ministry of Information and Megalink Advanced Technologies Co, Union Minister for Information Dr Pe Myint expressed the role of the elected government, saying that the incumbent government is elected by the people and it has a responsibility to inform the people of its works and to inform the people what is happening in the country. “The ministry decided to launch the MDN digital newspaper as digital or online media becomes popular in the country. It is found that today people consume news on mobile phones rather than on paper, and other private media turn to online media in Myanmar,”said the Union Minister. Meanwhile, the state-owned media has the responsibility to convey the opinion of the people to the governmental officials, he added. He also invited suggestions from officials and the public to improve the ministry’s digital media so that it can benefit the people. The launching ceremony to formally open the digital news operation was led by Dr. Pe Myint, Managing Director of the News and Periodicals Enterprise U Kyaw Soe and Megalink Advanced Technologies Co Ltd’s CEO U Than Htaik at Thingaha Hotel in Nay Pyi Taw. Myanmar Digital News (MDN) offers two state-run print media in the Burmese language, The Kyemon and The Myanma Alin, and one joint-venture print publication, The Global New Light of Myanmar, on mobile phones with its application. Besides, news and feature articles, there will be stories on the political, economic, educational, social, and editorial topics, in addition to opinion, TV, ethnic affairs, speeches and entertainment. All will be available via the MDN.
