This project will identify and recommend possible pathways and a roadmap to support the establishment of an ASEAN telecommunications single market, which is part of the Master Plan for ASEAN Connectivity.
It will enable stakeholders of the ASEAN telecommunications industry to take advantage of the opportunities presented by the global, regional, the ASEAN Economic Community and the ASEAN Member States (AMS) market environments; by:
(i) Conducting a study on the feasibility of establishing an ASEAN Telecommunications Single Market – the costs, benefits and risks; and
(ii) Assessing AMS regulatory and industry readiness for an ASEAN Telecommunications Single Market – the issues, challenges and proposed measures to address them; and
(iii) Formulating regulatory recommendations and a proposed roadmap and timeline for establishing an ASEAN Telecommunications Single Market.
The project is expected to conclude in the third quarter of 2017.
