Abstract

The information infrastructure is the main “hard” component of e-development but its development and dynamism depend on “soft” policies and regulations to induce both supply of and demand for telecommunications. This infrastructure enables the sharing of knowledge and information among various actors in the society. It is the main prerequisite for the introduction of high value-added applications, especially in e-business and e-government as access precedes service rollout. On the other hand, demand drivers, based on content, have to replace the former supply-driven model of “build it and they will come”—to avoid costly public investments. A holistic approach addresses both the demand and supply side at the same time.
