QNET Expansion into Myanmar ahead of ASEAN Community
QNET opened its first ever office in the South East Asian country of Myanmar with a ceremony in the capital, Yangon, yesterday. The launch of the agency office marks the formal introduction of a local QNET customer service centre in Myanmar that will support more people to raise their standard of living through QNET’s entrepreneurial opportunity.
“QNET firmly believes that there is nothing more empowering to individuals than the financial freedom that a career in the direct selling industry provides, and we believe the people of Myanmar, with their ambition and strong sense of entrepreneurship, will appreciate the quality consumer products we sell and the business opportunities we offer,” says Stevenson Charles, QNET’s Regional General Manager, South East Asia.
QNET partners with local company, Kyi Min Brothers Group of Companies, to provide local customer support to people in Myanmar and to display QNET products. QNET, based on its projected plan, is optimistic that the direct selling industry in Myanmar will be progressive as is trending in other emerging economies.
With ASEAN countries coming together as the Asian Economic Community (AEC) in 2015, QNET sees no boundaries to its growth opportunities and potential.
“The AEC 2015 is a game changer as it will enhance business facilitation and connectivity within ASEAN. Our objective in Myanmar is similar to that of the AEC which is to realise a community that is politically cohesive, economically integrated, socially responsible and a truly people-oriented and people-centred,” adds Stevenson.
QNET’s new office is located in the heart of Yangon business district with the following address: No 206 – B, La Pyae Wunn Business Centre, Dagon Township. The Yangon office will act as the main support center for QNET in Myanmar, offer product and ethical marketing training and will provide consultations about the company, products, after-sales service and customer support for Independent Representatives (IRs) from Monday to Friday 9:30 am – 5:30 pm.
Currently, there are about 2,000 registered IRs of QNET in the country – mainly in Yangon, Mandalay and Pagan cities.
Mr. Kyi Min Han, Managing Director of Kyi Min Brothers Group of Companies said, “We are excited and humbled by this opportunity, and would like to express our gratitude for the support of the authorities in Myanmar. QNET understands that building capabilities has always been one of Myanmar’s priorities to develop its socio economic development.
“We look forward to deepening our relationship with QNET through a strong partnership with the local people in the areas of entrepreneurship and international trade. I would like to call on the people of Myanmar to visit our office, see the variety of QNET products on display and grab the opportunities available through QNET.”
Also present at the launch today were QNET Directors, Mr. Kuna Senathirajah and Mr. Krishna Kumar, as well as a host of dignitaries and IRs of QNET in Myanmar.
