This chapter compares South Asia with the rest of the world in terms of key telecommunications sector indicators and performance measures, in order to highlight the sector's overall infrastructure and investment needs. It provides an overview of the intra-regional initiatives and projects that are underway or planned in this sector, including initiatives on regulatory cooperation and frameworks, along with proposed or on-the-ground cross-border investments in telecom services between countries in the region. The chapter highlights the progress of such intra-regional efforts and commercial ventures. It also discusses the multilateral and other commitments made by the South Asian countries in the telecom services sector, in the context of the World Trade Organization and in various bilateral or extra-regional agreements, respectively, to assess the extent to which these countries are prepared for liberalization and reforms.

Keywords:   South Asia, telecommunications, investment, infrastructure, reforms, liberalization, commercial ventures, cooperation, World Trade Organization
