Abstract

The Asia-Pacific region is becoming a significant driver of global economic growth. In 2010, the region’s developing countries grew at a rate of 8.8 per cent compared to 2.7 per cent for the world’s developed economies. In the region, mobile telephony and broadband internet in particular are bringing unprecedented digital opportunities that are transforming societies. However, a number of gaps, particularly in infrastructure, need to be addressed to ensure that these digital opportunities do not engender a digital divide, thereby accelerating regional inequities. The graphs in this document seek to provide a way to visualize the effect of factors such as ICT skills and infrastructure, ICT prices and access, and average income, on the development of ICT in the Asia-Pacific region.
