TOKYO--(Business Wire)--
Dentsu Inc. (TOKYO:4324)(ISIN: JP3551520004)(President & CEO: Tadashi Ishii;
Head Office: Tokyo; Capital: 58,967.1 million yen) announced today that the
Dentsu Asia Pte. Ltd. Myanmar Branch Office which was established on February 6,
2013 in Yangon, Republic of the Union of Myanmar (hereinafter "Myanmar"), a
country of 62 million people and one of the new growth markets in Asia, began
operations today. The new office falls under the jurisdiction of Dentsu Asia
Pte. Ltd., the wholly owned subsidiary of Dentsu Inc. that oversees operations
in the ASEAN and Oceania region. 

As Myanmar makes the transition to civilian rule and democracy, countries around
the world have started to ease their economic sanctions. Now in the formative
years of its market economy, the country has abundant, high-quality manpower and
resources, and Myanmar's government is proactively working on infrastructures
for the introduction of foreign capital. A new foreign investment law was
enacted in November 2012, and the eagerness of foreign companies to enter the
Myanmar market is growing rapidly. Several Japanese companies have already
started to develop a market presence in Myanmar, and Western and local companies
are also showing an increase in activities there. Moreover, since the 27th South
East Asian Games (SEA Games) will be held in Myanmar this year, demand for
advertising activities linked to sports events is also expected. 

The establishment of the Dentsu Asia Myanmar Branch Office will enable Dentsu
Asia to promptly respond to the market potential in Myanmar and offer services
that are unique to Dentsu. Working in collaboration with Dentsu Group companies
in Japan and the ASEAN region as well as with local companies, Dentsu Asia
Myanmar will offer its clients, mainly Japanese companies, a wide range of
advertising and communications services.
