Burma is launching its first web portal, named “Yatanarpon News” in September. The portal, supported by the Burmese regime, may become the most popular website in Burma.  Yatanarpon.com.mm is currently in Burmese, but it is reported that the site will have an English page as well. Like other web portals such as Yahoo, AOL and MSNBC, Yatanarpon will include international, entertainment, and business news.

It will also have online shopping and banking. Yatarnarpon will also have an email and messenger system very much like Yahoo Mail and GMail. Some are questioning whether this website is a way to attract the Burmese population into using the government’s website and not depend on other services such as GMail and Yahoo Mail.

Yatarnarpon is a web portal very much like Yahoo.

It is also reported that the Burmese government will be blocking the usage of other major internet sites during the launch of Yatarnarpon.  What is your take on Yatanarpon? Do you think it’s a good idea that Burma will be launching their first web portal?
