Abstract

Singapore has put in place an advanced broadband telecommunications infrastructure in both the landline and wireless domains to support the growth of intelligent enterprises in the new economy. A pro-business environment modeled on a slew of policy frameworks, the presence of an e-government, and the entrenching of a transparent e-commerce ecosystem, have led to the rise of intelligent enterprises as well as encouraged other businesses to re-engineer various aspects of their operations to tap new business opportunities and improve their operational efficiencies. M-commerce initiatives are also helping to fuel the growth of online commerce. The need for state intervention to drive growth and applications has been found to be very important.
