Issues in Telecommunications Development

Finance and Trade, 1996-1998 Review

image of Issues in Telecommunications Development

This publication is intended to provide an annual review of various key issues in international telecommunications as examined by the International Telecommunication Union/Telecommunication Development Bureau - ITU/BDT. This year’s authors have focused on trade, partnership and financing within the context of restructuring and globalization.




While globalisation and restructuring are the hallmarks of the new telecommunications environment, agreement on methodologies to achieve long term goals such as universal access and fair competition, require debate amongst the leaders of the sector. The involvement of the private sector in the development process increases the complexity and diversity of approaches.
