Mobile connectivity and digital communication has become part of our everyday life. Being connected is what enables us to work, to play and to take part in society. Phones not only means freedom, they mean opportunity and growth. Mobile connectivity is not a luxury good for the few - it's a necessity for everyone.

As it prepares its market entry into Myanmar, Telenor Group puts 15 years of experience in Asia to the test. Eager for growth and change, this frontier market aims to leapfrog the mobile development chain and enter the digital age faster than any country's ever done before. This presents a range of opportunities, but also a set of challenges.

In this session, Jon Fredrik Baksaas, President and CEO of Telenor Group, one of the top 10 mobile operators in the world and a leading operator in the Asia region, shares his perspectives on reaching the mass market and enabling emerging nations to leapfrog to an inclusive digital future. A digital future for all.
