page 7 Thomas Stahlecker Seminar Angewandte Wirtschaftsgeographie WS 2006/2007 (2) ICT Policy mixes in Asia: general characteristics In most of Eastern and Southeastern Asian countries, the state manifests itself prominently in business life, beyond the degree of interference known from Western countries Government influences in forcing or even "engineering" the entry of firms into export markets and then into high-technology sectors (Mathews, 2002); e.g. South Korea, Taiwan: Import substitution, Export diversification, Technology transfer Macro policies: Adoption of an open economy policy emphasizing free trade (Liberalization and deregulation in the 1990s), comparatively free movement of capital, welcoming FDI in export-oriented manufacturing and provision macro-economic stability Sectoral programs and complementary policies since the early 1990s with the aim to strengthening certain elements of ICT NIS: public R&D support (basic and applied research), technology infrastructure, investments on education/training, campaigns to increase ICT usage
page 8 Thomas Stahlecker Seminar Angewandte Wirtschaftsgeographie WS 2006/2007 (2a) ICT Policy in selected Asian countries compared I South Korea SingaporeTaiwan Export-oriented industry policies in the 1960s/70s (export-diversification) 1st phase (of industrialisation): government strongly supported the development of national competitive industries, rather than FDI 2nd phase (high-technology development in the 1980s): FDI, technology transfer; "integrated" ICT for development master plan as early as the 1980s 1990s: Launching the Korea Information Infrastructure Plan (KII) : Cyber Korea : e-Korea vision 2007 Example for a successful dirigiste policy that has direct business involvement (quasi-state enterprises: banking, logistics, services etc.), controlled by govern. Investment holding companies Direct government intervention to coordinate technological development and diffusion in the IT area (institution building for ICT R&D e.g. ITRI, R&D consortia), investing in training

National campaigns with regard to ICT related education, qualification and sensibilisation ("digital divide") Public procurement of ICTs: the government as a lead market? Improvement of governance coordination on (and between) the different policy levels (multi-actor, multi-level policies)
page 15 Thomas Stahlecker Seminar Angewandte Wirtschaftsgeographie WS 2006/2007 (1) Main research questions in relation to WP7 Which of the "ingredients" or critical factors are the result of a policy or could be reinforced by policy action? Under what political conditions do ICTs participate in the transformation of the economy? Under what political conditions do other sectors take advantage of ICT? What role is played – and under what political conditions – by mature and edge (ICT) technologies, R&D and innovation, public and private financing in the transformation of the economy? Which lessons can be learned from the European perspective?

page 17 Thomas Stahlecker Seminar Angewandte Wirtschaftsgeographie WS 2006/2007 (3) National ICT policy in India II Key policy initiatives Establishment of the Ministry of Communication and Information Technology (MCIT) in 1999: integrating existing government agencies in charge of IT. Software Technology Park Policy (STP) (since 1990): a 100% export oriented scheme for the development and export of software. STP can be a virtual software devlopement unit or an infrastructure complex. First STPs established in Pune and Bangalore. Foreign equity up to 100% permitted; exemption of software and IT services exports from taxes. "Operation Knowledge" as a national campaign focusses on computer literacy and broad use of computers and IT in education; set up of different institutions: a National Council of IT Education, Indian Institutes of Information Technology, Institute for Computer Professionals of India etc. E-governance projects: Establishment of a National Institute of Smart Government and National Informatics Centre to support e-government implementation or e-government support to ministries
page 18 Thomas Stahlecker Seminar Angewandte Wirtschaftsgeographie WS 2006/2007 (3) National ICT policy in India III Key initiatives for ICT innovation Establishment of a high level institutional framework in order to coordinate and foster research, design and development (RD&D); crucial actors: government with active participation of industry. Establishment of a non-governmental, autonomous Information Technology Development Board. Tasks: identification of Information Society projects, encouragement of collaboration between academia, RD&D organisations, IT industry, project funding and establishment of funding mechanisms. Measures for support of RD&D manpower such as minor IT education by all undergraduate and postgraduate colleges, qualification of industrial R&D staff, support of exchange between academie and industry. Establishment of inter-department committee for the formulation of policy and programmes to adopt national standards for Information Technology.
page 19 Thomas Stahlecker Seminar Angewandte Wirtschaftsgeographie WS 2006/2007 (3) National ICT policy in India IV Lessons learned from India The Indian government heavily stimulated ICT industries by its large demand (28 percent of total IT spending can be attributed to government and public sector expenditure); this was followed by an increase of ICT sector's domestic activities with a high impact on the domestic economy. A further key factor in India's ICT development are the public-private partnerships initiated by the Ministry of Information Technology. Development of an international competitive software industry as a strategic policy goal National ICT policies are supplemented by ICT policies of the Indian states (huge differences in the development of the states)
page 20 Thomas Stahlecker Seminar Angewandte Wirtschaftsgeographie WS 2006/2007 (5) National ICT policy in Singapore I Singapore has relied almost exclusively on foreign direct investments (FDI); particularly Transnational Companies (TNCs) have enabled the country to move to advanced manufacturing in the 1980s/90s National IT plan ( ) IT2000 ( ) Infocomm 21 ( ) Connected Singapore (2003-present) Provision of one- stop services through cross- agency linkages. Public services using IT to automate traditional manual administrative processes Position Singapore as a global IT hub; construction of a high-speed nationwide broadband network (Singapore ONE), forging of intern. alliances with industry leaders Develop Singapore into a global infocomm capital (e- economy, e- society); the plan included multiple strategic thrusts (e.g. promoting e- business, gov. service online) Current blueprint continues to build on the Infocomm plan; it sees infocomm as a key enabler to create new business opportunities, consumer value and cultural experiences Singapore's National ICT strategies
page 21 Thomas Stahlecker Seminar Angewandte Wirtschaftsgeographie WS 2006/2007 (5) National ICT policy in Singapore II The Infocomm Development Authority (IDA) as a key player Primary focus on developing suitable policies and initiatves for the telecommuni-cations and IT sector (Activities: 1. Outreach to residents and companies to promote the use of information and networking technologies, 2. Promotion and development of S's info-comm industry itself, 3.

page 29 Thomas Stahlecker Seminar Angewandte Wirtschaftsgeographie WS 2006/2007 (6) National ICT policy in Taiwan IV The m-Taiwan Project The central aim of the m-Taiwan Project is to shift Taiwan from an "e-nation" to an "m-nation", to realize the Taiwan vision of "Mobile Taiwan". The m-Taiwan Project is expected to beef up the wireless networks, integrate mobile phone networks, setup the optical-fiber backbones and create an "ubiquitous network". Three core aspects of the project: 1. m-life: m-social well-being, m-communities, m-entertainment, m-health care 2. m-services: complete the basic infrastructure in Taiwan (e.g. broadband channel, fiber optic connections) and bring convenient mobile services to everyone 3. m-learning: creating a new wave of lifelong e-learning beginning at schools Multi-level project with a budget of NTD37 bn dollars in five years
page 30 Thomas Stahlecker Seminar Angewandte Wirtschaftsgeographie WS 2006/2007 (6) National ICT policy in Taiwan V Key success factors of Taiwan's ICT sector Accoring to Kraemer et al. (1996), Taiwan's success in ICT has been due to a coordinated government strategy to support private entrepreneurship by a large number of small, flexible, innovative companies ("two-way relationship between environment and policy"). The government has closely complemented the activities of the ICT companies in the international markets by carrying out R&D and transferring technology to the private sector. Multi actor national innovation system: multitude of government planning and coordination bodies (MOEA, NSC, NIIA) as well as other important institutions (e.g. ITRI, the Institute for Information Industry (III), the Hsinchu Science-based Industry Park) Human capital development or the provision of highly skilled workforce as a key success factor of Taiwan
