Business finance summit to discuss emerging markets and telecommunications


The upcoming business development and finance summit, the ICT Finance Emerging Markets Global Summit, is set to discuss emerging markets and telecommunications.

The summit, announced by the Commonwealth Telecommunications Organisation (CTO) and the international consultancy firm, BroadGroup, is to take place on December 6-7, 2010 at the BIS Conference Centre in London, England.

In attendance will be members of the telecommunications industry, ICT Government Ministers, CEOs of telecom operating companies, ICT regulators, high-level telecom finance executives, financiers and investors, law firms and management consultancy practices. The summit will also tackle the need to develop innovative international investment partnerships to stimulate ICT growth across emerging markets.

Dr Ekwow Spio-Garbrah, CEO of the Commonwealth Telecommunications Organisation, said, “It is now very well known that ICTs are a critical enabler of national development. Indeed, in many countries the challenge is how to use ICTs as facilitational mechanisms to transform whole economies through e-commerce, e-governance, e-education and other e-applications. But ICTs cannot spread rapidly in any country without the necessary infrastructure of fibre, satellite and wireless backbones, networks, and systems. And all these need finance. Investing in ICTs in emerging markets is therefore very critical for developing countries to realise their fullest potential…This forum offers a unique platform for stakeholders in developing markets to network with fund owners, technology providers, investors and other specialist advisers.”

“The event provides an exceptional opportunity for government, industry and finance players across emerging markets to connect and assess partnership opportunities,” added Dominic Lowndes, Managing Director of BroadGroup TMT Ventures, and Editor of TMT Finance News Alert.

Among the subjects to be discussed will be key business finance opportunities, content rich keynotes, expert panels, and round table debate. Flagship sessions include the Ministerial Panel, Telecom Leadership Roundtable, Raising Finance for Emerging Markets, Infrastructure Investment for Emerging Markets, M&A Panel, Investing in Emerging Broadband, Connecting Rural Communities and will also host the ICT Leadership Debate.
