The mobile sector is having a transformational impact on the societies of emerging markets in the Asia Pacific region. It is creating efficiencies in everyday communication, productivity and knowledge. Communication is more prolific than ever before, with mobile platforms providing a basis for instant social and professional connections.
To facilitate further economic and societal change across the region, in both urban and rural areas, the industry must continue to grow.
