Eward, Ronald S.
This document is a review and study of current and prospective telecommunication policies in 17 countries with regard to the competitive market access those policies foster or promise. It explores the policies of each country toward information flow that will also have an impact on international competition. The aim of the study is to identify the degree of competitive access allowed U.S. companies in the provision of telecommunications and information products and services. The study profiles each of the selected countries with main attention given to the following: (1) organizational structures; (2) services structure and policies; (3) data and telephone services; (4) international services structure and policies; (5) new services; and (6) future competitive access. The 17 countries profiled are Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Federal Republic of Germany, France, Hong Kong, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Philippines, Singapore, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom, and Venezuela. Information on all 17 countries is presented in three tables: Major Telecommunications Entities by Country; Market Structures by Service Categories by Country; and Equipment Market Structures and Approval Authorities by Country.
