Spring 2018 update from the Yangon Office

Thanks and best wishes to Hnin

We wish to extend our heartfelt thanks to Country Manager Hnin, who has worked hard over the past two years to get the Yangon office up and running.

Hnin has been in post since the office first opened in 2016, and over her time at PB she has put into place many policies and laid the groundwork for our work in the country. We are delighted that she will be leaving us on a high note, having secured Prospect Burma official registration in the country, something she has been working on for many months! She travelled to Nay Pyi Taw this March to collect our registration document. Congratulations Hnin, and good luck in your future endeavours, from all at PB.
