Frontier Economics report for Telenor launched in Bangkok
Today, the recent report produced for Telenor by a joint team from Frontier Economics in Europe and Asia “The Mobile Effect : How Connectivity Has Enabled Growth” was launched in Bangkok.
This project comprised a regional study that quantified the impact of the telecommunications sector within the five Asian markets where Telenor operates. Our research found that the telecommunications sector contributed more than one percent of the GDPs in Bangladesh, Pakistan, Myanmar, Thailand and Malaysia, while the sectors enabled by telecommunications contributed almost three quarters of overall gross value added across these markets. Further, the findings showed the direct contribution that Telenor has on these economies in creating, producing and supplying telecommunications services.
James Allan, Director, based at Frontier Economics in Singapore, was on hand to present some of the findings from the report. Commenting on the importance of connectivity in markets, James outlined that connectivity is fundamental to the process of businesses being able to find customers, and consumers being able to find products that they want to buy. “As connectivity increases, it translates into better ways to create and manage data along with the process of production and delivery. The more that customers and suppliers can connect with each other, the greater the positive impact on economic growth.”
Frontier Economics regularly advises clients in the telecommunications sector.
