The Internet is diffusing rapidly across the developing world, creating many new challenges and opportunities, such as for commerce. The opportunities and problems tied to the worldwide diffusion of the Internet will be discussed through the specific case of Vietnam.
Nguyen Thu Hue will report on the state of Internet development in Vietnam and highlight the regulatory efforts are under way. Christian Ahlert, who served as a consultant to the project and travelled to Vietnam to work with government and businesses on legal reform in the ITC sector, will place the project into the broader context of the regulatory challenges posed by the Internet.
We are grateful to the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) for their support of this seminar series.
Nguyen Thu Hue is the coordinator of the Global Internet Policy Initiative project in Vietnam, funded under the Asia IT&C programme of Europe Aid.
