Telecommunications in Asia: Policy, Planning, and Development

The Asian region is seeing the largest expansion of telecommunications in history. From rural communications to information superhighways, the demand for equipment and services is the fastest growing in the world. What is driving it? How is it to be financed? Where will the equipment come from? Trade in telecommunications and related information and media services is also growing rapidly throughout the region, and is forcing many Asian governments to respond and protect their national interest. At the same time, local Asian companies are becoming regional players in their own right. This book is a timely examination of all these issues.
