|This report is the first of a series of regional statistical profiles on the information society prepared by ITU in 2009, as an input to the six regional preparatory meetings (RPMs) for the ITU World Telecommunication Development Conference 2010 (WTDC-10). These developments were examined in detail in the 2008 ITU Asia-Pacific Telecommunication/ ICT Indicators Report, on which Chapter 2 of this report is based. It highlights some of the earlier key findings and provides the latest updates and figures. The report also features a regional analysis of the ITU ICT Development Index (IDI) and the ICT Price Basket, two ICT benchmarking tools that were launched in March 2009.
