Statement on the Anniversary of the Internet Blackout in Myanmar

On the anniversary of the suspension of mobile data services in parts of Rakhine and Chin States in Myanmar, The American Chamber of Commerce in Myanmar (AMCHAM Myanmar) unequivocally reiterates support for the unrestricted flow of information, one of the conditions necessary for business and communities to thrive. Lifting prolonged restrictions on internet access will be a positive step in the right direction to promote continued foreign direct investment (FDI) and will encourage businesses to operate responsibly and ethically. We call on the government to restore internet access to the impacted areas.
