Description

In this study, the Economic Committee has attempted to meet three objectives:

  1. To articulate the concept of an information society and to demonstrate its usefulness as a window through which to view and to assess the foundations that APEC member economies are establishing to support continued economic growth;
  2. To document the development of APEC member economies as information societies; and,
  3. To look at how APEC member economies can work together to develop the infrastructure and supportive policy frameworks required to further foster the development of the information society in the region.
