Executive Summary

After a period of patchy growth following a global economic downturn and a worldwide telecommunications recession, Asia has commenced a healthy consolidation right across its telecommunications sector. The developed economies of Asia have started serious expansion into more advanced networks and value added services, leading the world in many respects. The developing markets are generally starting to move forward in the building of infrastructure and reforming of the marketplace. Not surprisingly, development of telecommunications has varied enormously between the Asian countries from world leaders like South Korea and Japan to some of the poorest and most secretive countries on earth. This report presents statistical tables for each of 35 countries in Asia.

Purchase with Confidence

As you know, I have resigned from the Labor Ministry and have decided not to re-contest the seat of Charlton at the next election – both for personal reasons.

Before leaving Parliament, I particularly wish to record my thanks to you for your generous and constructive participation in the deliberations that generated significant economic policy reforms for the Australian community. Continuous economic transformation is a key challenge that faces all Governments.

The development of sound public policy should always be contestable. Ultimately, good and equitable outcomes are not concessions to any particular interest group, but the careful balancing of interests to create the greatest possible benefit for the nation. You have contributed to that, and I sincerely thank you for it.

Greg Combet, Former Minister for Climate Change, Industry and Innovation
