New Office Premises
After three years of working under sub-optimal conditions the KAS team in Myanmar was delighted to move into new premises with up to date facilities at Hledan Centre in Yangon's Kamayut Township. The Centre is also home to the EU delegation in Myanmar and is located near the Yangon University's campus. The new premises will allow KAS to offer - for the first time in the office's short history - internships as now appropriate workstations are available.
