The Myanmar government is seeking expressions of interest from international operators looking to join the consortium that will become the market's fourth mobile operator.

Operators will have until Friday to submit an expression of interest to the government, the Myanmar Times reported.

The winning applicant will join a group of 11 local technology and other companies that have successfully applied to take part in the consortium.

The consortium will then be awarded a 15-year telecom license with an option to extend this for at least 10 additional years. These are the some terms granted to Telenor and Ooredoo during their successful bid to launch mobile operations in the market.

Roland Berger, the consultancy firm that helped choose Telenor and Ooredoo as the winners of the tender to grant two mobile licenses, will also help select the international applicant to take part in the new consortium.

Operators will need to be able to bring the necessary expertise and financing to ensure a successful mobile rollout. The license will be granted next year after the joint venture has been formed.
