Weathernews Inc. set up operation center in Yangon
On June 8, the Weathernews Inc. opened up its operation center in Sakura Tower. The opening ceremony was attended by Japanese Ambassador Higuchi and NLD Senior Advisor Tin Oo.
This is the sixth country with an operational center for the company. It processes and provides weather information for marine transport companies. After Philippines and India, Myanmar supplies the third largest number of seamen, so the needs for ship voyage weather information is high. The number of ship voyage weather technologists is less than to 100 worldwide, so by teaching these skills to people with maritime knowledge including primarily maritime graduates, the company can provide information for safe voyages.
