Mitsubishi Materials Trading has started to sell a 12-design series of Wabana Monyo Fine Gold Bookmarks. Using Japanese flowers from the different seasons and traditional patterns, the series was designed in collaboration with the renowned Japanese stamp designer Motoharu Morita. Each design makes the beholder aware of the Japanese aesthetic sense. The bookmarks suit a wide range of situations and can be used to mark pages in your favorite book, to take as a souvenir when visiting friends abroad or as a gift for important customers, family or friends.

     In Myanmar, many people currently travel abroad to receive medical services in Thailand, Singapore and other neighboring countries. The new joint venture will construct a 300-bed general hospital fully equipped to provide high quality medical care in Yangon. Leveraging CDSGfs diversified business network in Myanmar, the hospital will be constructed in the integrated development complex gCapital City.h Yee Shin will provide the hospital management expertise it has built up through its management of two hospitals in Mandalay.
