Bharti says submits final bid for Myanmar telecoms licence
NEW DELHI, June 4
NEW DELHI, June 4 (Reuters) - Indian telecommunications carrier Bharti Airtel Ltd has submitted its final bid for a telecoms licence in Myanmar, a company spokesman told Reuters on Tuesday.
Myanmar, one of the world's last major untapped mobile markets, has called bids for two mobile licences and short-listed 12 international consortia.
Vodafone and China Mobile, which were among the 12 to reach the short-list, last week pulled out of the race saying the conditions set by the country did not suit the two operators. (Reporting by Devidutta Tripathy; Editing by Sunil Nair)
