Telecommunications Development in Asia

This chapter discusses industrial reform in Malaysia. Since the mid-1980s Malaysia's focus on industrial reform is best summed up as the “managed market” approach. The Industrial Master Plan launched in 1986 set out development targets, including the electronics and computer technology sectors, and was aimed at refocusing industrial planning from a largely market-oriented approach to a distinctly planned or target-oriented approach within a free enterprise economy. This approach has been carried through to the 2000s. This chapter also discusses Brunei's telecommunications market. Until 2005 telecommunications was dominated by two monopolies, the Jabatan Telekom Brunei (JTB) for fixed-line services and, since 1995, DST (DataStream Technologies) for mobile (GSM) and pay-TV services in partnership with ASTRO of Malaysia.
