I believe Uber will help Myanmar becoming an ideal market in Southeast Asia by providing safety and improved services to our people and international tourists. I hope the service provided by Uber will be a new milestone for continued friendly relationships between Myanmar and The United States.”

“We are excited to launch in Myanmar, serving riders, drivers and the city of Yangon.
