What kind of country is Myanmar?

Updated: Jun 16, 2023

Hello, everyone! This is Takahashi from Wiz Global!

The cold days continue, so please take care not to get sick! We have welcomed new staff members from Myanmar at Wiz Global, and many Myanmar people are attending the foreign employment support school operated by Wiz Global (Wiz Academy)!

Last time, I introduced Nepal, Sri Lanka, and Vietnam, so this time, I would like to introduce Myanmar! What kind of country is Myanmar? It takes about 10 hours by plane from Japan. The official name is the Republic of the Union of Myanmar, and its capital is Naypyidaw. It is a republic located in the western part of the Indochinese Peninsula in Southeast Asia. Myanmar's land area, which covers the west coast of the Indochinese Peninsula, is about 1.8 times the size of Japan.

Myanmar shares borders with Thailand to the southeast, Laos to the east, China to the northeast and north, India to the northwest, and Bangladesh to the west. Myanmar people not only resemble Japanese people in appearance but also share some similarities in character. Due to the influence of Buddhist culture deeply rooted in Myanmar, there is a culture that does not consider excessive self-assertion as good, which can be seen as similar to the gentle and modest nature of the Japanese.

Furthermore, Myanmar people have high language skills, and many of them can communicate in English without any problems, thanks to English education starting from kindergarten. Myanmar people tend to adapt well to life in Japan relatively easily, and there are many talented individuals who can make a quick impact. On a different note, I received warm messages from students who have received multiple job offers, and I would like to share a few of them.

Receiving such messages really warms the heart and allows me to feel the fulfillment in this job, doesn't it?

I will continue to do my best even more from now on! It would be great if I could share updates about Wiz Global and more on the blog!
