July 9, 2017, Yangon, Myanmar Department of Technical and Vocational Education and Training (DTVET) under the Ministry of Education and Sea Lion Group, a leading provider of healthcare, education, and industrial solutions in Myanmar, today signed the collaboration agreement to establish School of Industrial Training and Education (SITE) at 123 Natmauk Road in Bahan, Yangon, Myanmar. According to the agreement, DTVET will provide the land, existing building, renovation expenses, construction of new buildings, staffing and continuing operations of the school and Sea Lion, with the support of its global partners, Festo of Germany, EMCO and Felder of Austria, Urban Architects of Thailand, will provide master planning and detail planning of the campus, state-of-the-art training equipment, training materials and training of the trainers. The school will offer occupational skills-based training in Industrial Automation, CNC Metal Cutting, Water and Wastewater Management, Solar and Wind Power Energies and Woodworking using the same training models in Germany and Austria, the leading countries in technical and vocational education and training.

The signing ceremony held at SITE campus was attended by Union Minister for Education, Dr. Myo Thein Gyi, Chief Minister of Yangon U Phyo MIn Thein and ministers from Yangon region government, officials from DTVET, management of Sea Lion and global partners, diplomats, and invited guests.

During the TVET Forum and Exhibition in July 2016, State Counselor Daw Aung San Suu Kyi emphasized the importance of TVET education for development of the nation and urged the policy makers to model TVET system in Myanmar after the best and the most successful countries leading in TVET sector. Her Excellency also urged the stakeholders to have inclusive public-private-partnership to achieve success.

The proposed School of Industrial Training and Education (SITE) will be the most innovative and advanced model TVET institution in the nation when it opens doors for students and trainees within a year from now. Training programs at the school are designed to bridge between classrooms and workplace seamlessly with the help from German and Austrian companies like Festo, Felder and EMCO. The school will cooperate with the industry to match the training and required skills, to offer on-the-job training and to offer SITE graduates employment in related fields.

For School of Industrial Training and Education (SITE), Union Government will contribute 2.5 billion Kyats for renovation of existing building, construction of new buildings, infrastructure, furniture, IT equipment and undertake the continuing operations of the school. Contributions from Sea Lion and its global partners totaled more than 1.5 billion Kyats.

Department of Technical and Vocational Education and Training under the Ministry of Education is responsible for the development of TVET institutions and schools in Myanmar to better equip the young citizens with required skills for better employment opportunities. The department is working closely with development partners from around the world including ADB, EU, KfW, GIZ, JICA, KOICA and others in bringing world class TVET system to Myanmar.

Sea Lion, established in 1997, and its partner Festo Didactic of Germany recently commissioned 2.8 million Euro project in Industrial Training Centre (Sinde) of Ministry of Industry under German development bank, Kfw, for training in automation, refrigeration, machine tools and CNC machine tools. ITC (Sinde) was established in 1976 with the grant from German government.

Lack of skilled workers in Myanmar has been one of the major challenges that investors are facing when considering doing business in Myanmar. Skilled technicians in manufacturing sector are in need to jumpstart industrialization in Myanmar towards sustainable development and to improve the livelihood of its citizens. The opening of SITE - School of Industrial Training and Education will help alleviate the shortage of skilled technicians in manufacturing and environmental sectors and increase better job prospects for young citizens of the country.

Grand Opening of N Health Myanmar

Sea Lion has launched a medical laboratory center in a joint venture with N Health Asia and Bahosi Hospital to improve the standard of medical care for the people of Myanmar.


Myanmar, 12 March 2017:

Mr. Narongrid Galaputh, CEO of Non-Hospital Group of Bangkok Dusit Medical Services Public Co Ltd (BDMS) and Managing Director of National Healthcare Systems Co Ltd (N Health), has announced that N Health, a medical service provider supporting hospital businesses based in Bangkok, has established a joint venture with two leading Myanmar organizations: Sea Lion Group, a loyal partner of BDMS and reputable leader in healthcare and various industries in the country, and Bahosi Hospital, a leading private institution. A budget of USD 2.5 m was split 60-20-20 respectively for the initial setup of the N Health medical laboratory center in Yangon, the commercial hub of Myanmar.
N Health Myanmar operates as a standalone laboratory center, independent from any hospital. It is also the first government-licensed private clinical laboratory to be developed from a joint venture investment with a major regional laboratory operator in Myanmar.
N Health Myanmar aims at supporting large hospitals for high-end genetic tests, allergy tests, as well as evaluations for tuberculosis, malaria, and dengue virus. Moreover, it intends to provide standard analytical services, including medical check-ups for small and medium-sized hospitals.

“This investment in Myanmar is a major step of N Health in accordance with our target set to expand more branches across the region after the Cambodian branch. After this, we have plans to expand N Health medical laboratory centers in other countries such as Indonesia and the Philippines. Our intentions are to reach more consumers and help them take preventive care of their health. Furthermore, we will continue to develop new products in order to keep up with a growing trend in healthcare,” said Mr. Narongrid Galaputh.

Sea Lion Group Managing Director Dr. Win Zaw Aung stated that this new joint venture will further diversify Sea Lion Group’s growing businesses in the Myanmar healthcare industry.
“We are ecstatic to extend our business collaboration with two longtime partners, N Health and Bahosi Hospital, to better serve our patients and the people of Myanmar with reliable laboratory services,” he commented.

N Health’s annual revenue of USD 90 million has increased year-over-year at 25% due to continued business expansion and increasing consumer demand. N Health expects to see a similar degree of growth this year; the Myanmar medical laboratory center will certainly help the company reach its targeted revenue.
