Then predict user scale in the next few years in the GMS based on the prediction of the ICT business by adopting a methodology that suited the current user scale most.

Thirdly, put forward planning scheme of infrastructure as a research reference according to the infrastructure status and the predictions we made above of the ICT development and user scale.

Lastly, provide suggestions on how to organize and implement the planning scheme of infrastructure development in the GMS based on the working mechanism of the ESCAP.

In addition, this report will also refer to some relevant research results of ESCAP and AP-IS implementation plans and regional cooperation framework documents.
