Plans for airport take off

Construction plans for a major new airport in Myanmar are expected to be finalized this month, according to the country’s department of civil aviation.

Hanthawaddy International in Bago Region about 50 miles outside Yangon is to open by 2020 and will have an initial capacity of 12 million passengers a year, a number that is eventually projected to rise to 30 million.

The £1.1billion project will become the most modern and main international gateway for Myanmar, with all international airlines reportedly to be based there instead of Yangon International Airport upon its completion.

Google invests in Southeast Asia

Google invested in Indonesia’s leading hail-riding service Go-Jek, news site Tech Crunch confirmed at the end of January.

The investment also involved China’s Meituar Dianping and Singaporean sovereign fund Temasek and was worth US$1.2 billion altogether. It marks the first investment from the US tech giant in Indonesia since its deal in India in December 2017.

Whether it will eventually set its sights on Myanmar, where Uber and Grab are rapidly expanding, only time will tell.
