LIRNEasia and ISEAS organized an expert forum on ICT indicators in Singapore in March 2007.  On the 26th of January, the Myanmar Ministry of Post and Telecom sent an e-mail to the ISEAS in Singapore, nominating an officer to attend.   That e-mail reached ISEAS yesterday (4th June 2006; more than four months later).

    Well, I can understand why it was so difficult, having it arrive almost seven months before it was sent ;).
