It is no wonder that The Straits Times has won international awards for publishing this year but nothing could bring local readers more joy than the excellent coverage of the recent General Election in Myanmar.

Besides the usual high-calibre reporting featured in the print edition of  The Straits Times, what impressed me the most was the amount of online analysis and graphics that accompanied the news digest which whetted my appetite for interactive facts.

Kudos to the editorial team covering the ground in Myanmar and I'm looking forward to more visually attractive news content across all media platforms.
