ITU Publication - The economic contribution of broadband, digitisation and ICT regulation
The transformative power of digital technologies and connectivity is empowering people, creating an environment that nurtures innovation, and triggering positive change in business processes and in the global economy.

By applying the same methodologies and econometric models used for assessing global effects, this study focuses on the impact of broadband, digital transformation and policy and regulatory frameworks on the growth of markets for digital services in the Asia-Pacific region. It also provides evidence of the importance of regulatory and institutional variables in driving digital growth, illustrating that broadband technologies and effective ICT regulation can have positive impacts on the development of national economies and prosperity.
