Myanmar is the second largest country in ASEAN and covers a total of 677,000 square kilometres, the country’s road network covers a mere 34,476km. By area, Myanmar is ranked 40th in the world and our road network is ranked 94th. Needless to say that for a large country, the road network is vastly insufficient.
Myanmar is a country that is rebuilding everything including its road network. Even with help from donor countries, building a sufficient road network across the country will take several decades and require tens of billions of dollars in funding.
By contrast, a drone network can be rolled out across the country within 5 years or less at a small fraction of the cost depending on sufficient regulatory frameworks.
