One of Asia’s last closed telecommunications markets is to loosen up, with Myanmar announcing its tender for two telecommunications licenses will be open to foreign companies.

There is no such place a Myanmar, the country is Burma, until a democratic government of that country decides to change it.
Burma in British English; the trailing 'h' is now optional. This is the only such name that the BBC doesn't use, since it was invented by e régime of which it disapproves. Governments may invent a preferred name in English for their country, but we do not have to use it. Too much kowtowing in this respect gives us such absurdities as 'Czech Republic' and 'Belarus'; while we are not supposed to use the English names for the unhappy countries Ivory Coast, and Saint Thomas and Prince. I don't recall a democratically-elected Chines government asking us to call Peking 'Beijing'. Speakers of non-English languages are spared these indignities.
Not quite true, it's recognised as Myanmar by a number of countries and the United Nations. The UK does not recognise the name and calls it Burma.
We are interested in what the people call it, not what is 'official' or approved by the BBC.
God help them if BT express an interest.
