March 7, 2016, Thahton – Telenor Myanmar Limited (“Telenor”) today held its 25th edition of Net Monday at Thahton Computer University, in Mon State. The focus for this event was on bridging the knowledge gap between academia and industry through effective use of the internet.
Net Monday is a monthly industry event organized by Telenor Myanmar to promote a rich dialogue on topics relevant to the growing digital and online community in Myanmar.

Young people are the future of this country, and with the rapid development of telecoms industry, youths have lots of opportunities to brighten their future by using internet to enhance their careers,” Petter said at the event.
More than 500 students and teachers joined the event. At the event, the panelists from Telenor Myanmar, RHC Technologies International Company Limited, Zwenexsys International Company Limited, and the rector of Thahton Computer University discussed how students’ interaction and familiarity with advanced technologies can benefit them, how the mobile internet development can help career development of youth, and how the internet development can enhance the career of youths both in tech and non-tech sectors.
