According to a recent report that was commissioned by ICANN and
published by the Boston Consulting Group  entitled, The Connected
World, greasing the wheels of the Internet Economy, digitally driven
economic growth continues to be one of the few bright spots in a
sluggish global economy. Reducing or eliminating numerous factors that
inhibit online interactions and exchange could cause this growth to be
even faster  and could have an even bigger impact.


1) To what extent is the policy environment facilitating the expansion
of infrastructure which is one of the major factors limiting access to
online activity?

2) To what extent is the  policy environment  facilitating the
development of skilled labour and availability of Capital  that would
support the development of digital businesses?

3) To what extent is the growth and development of payment systems and
enhancement of data security affecting the degree to which citizens
and consumers engage in online activities?

4)To what extent is the policy environment promoting the use of local
content as well as facilitating Internet openness?
