Yangon, 19 Nov—Japanese electronics giant Panasonic is ready to take part in Myanmar’s infrastructure development programmes with its innovative and powerful technology, Thin Zar, manager of Panasonic Asia Pacific Pte. Ltd, told the Global New Light of Myanmar on Wednesday.
At the first Panasonic Solutions Expo in Yangon, she said the company is paying particular attention to business-to-government opportunities in the country’s programmes for electricity supply.
The company will continue to create environmental value for people with its product technology and minimize the environmental impacts of its business activities, the official said.
As part of its corporate social responsible (CSR) activities, the electronics corporation is planning to donate 2,000 solar lanterns to areas without electricity in Myanmar through NGOs, Thin Zar explained, saying that approximately 7,000 lanterns were donated in some areas of Myanmar including a cyclone-hit area in Ayeyawady last year.
The aim of the donation is to enable easy access to electricity and reduce the black smoke from kerosene lamps. According to a survey, there are 1.32 billion people who live in areas without electricity worldwide.
A local distributor said that the company is scheduled to conduct a class on handmade batteries for primary school children in December with the aim of sharing knowledge about batteries and their properties. The activities have been held in Myanmar since 2013. GNLM
