NEW DELHI, April 11 A consortium of India's
Bharti Airtel Ltd has qualified to enter the final
stage of a telecommunications licensing process in Myanmar, a
company source said on Thursday, pitting it against some of the
world's leading carriers to secure a permit in one of the last
major untapped markets.
There are still more than a dozen companies competing for
the two licences on offer, the source said, declining to give
any further details.
China Mobile, Vodafone, and a group backed
by George Soros last week said they were in the race for a
telecom licence in Myanmar.
