Thanks to a committed team of over 350 staff in Yangon and Mandalay, MMRD Publications is the leading directory publisher with over 230,000 business listings, over 25,000 advertisements nationwide.
Until 1992, when the Yangon Directory was first published, there were no classified listings of businesses operating in Myanmar. MMRD Publications responded to this need and was met with gratitude when 2,000 people queued up to receive a copy on the Yangon Directory’s first day of publication.
For 24 consecutive years, we have been bringing buyers and sellers together through our wide array of printed directories. In 2002, MMRD Publications launched the first online classified directory in Myanmar, www.YangonDirectory.com which is connecting over a million of buyers and sellers together digitally every year. In 2014, the Yangon Directory mobile application was first launched, providing consumers with access to the classified database of Yangon businesses through the mobile phone.
Following the success of yangondirectory.com, the division has successfully launched websites for Mandalay Directory, Myanmar Builders Guide, Education Directory and Guide for Everyone (EDGE) and Myanmar Wedding Guide.
It is an exciting time at MMRD Publications. As the leading provider of data, consultancy and essential information to businesses, MMRD is responding to the changes in technology, to provide consumers and advertisers with products and services that match the multimedia age.
A wide range of online and digital products and services are being introduced in the coming months which will enhance the number of options for businesses in Myanmar to reach their existing customers and to attract new customers.
MMRD products continue to BRING BUYERS AND SELLERS TOGETHER, whether in printed, online or digital form.
Our vision is to take advantage of the many new digital forms of media to enhance the services we offer to businesses in Myanmar. Printed directories will certainly continue in the future but the additional digital services will prove an increasingly popular enhancement to print advertising.
