The report produced for Telenor by Frontier Economics, “The Mobile Effect : How Connectivity Has Enabled Growth”, was recently launched in Bangkok.
This report was a regional study that quantified the economic 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.
A summary of key results and the report can be accessed here.
This report was jointly produced by Frontier Economics teams in Singapore and London. For more information contact Clive Kenny on +44 (0) 207 031 7000.
