In an interview with Bangkok-based Nation newspaper, Dr Than Htut Aung, the chairman and CEO of Eleven Media, described the Memorandum of Understanding between the two companies as a “symbol of friendship” between Burma and Thailand. “Both our cultures and histories are very close. I like the mindset of Thais…and press freedom in Thailand is very impressive,” he said. The interview did not disclose any of the details of the deal.
