This following report is divided into four chapters, with chapter one containing the introduction. Chapter two reviews the state of ICT-competitiveness in the case study countries, by looking at infrastructure, the legal and regulatory situation, the business environment, and human resources. Chapter three examines the benefits of ICT for the overall economy as well as for facilitating traditional trade and participating in emerging ICT-enabled services trade. It analyzes the case study countries' potential for becoming players in ICT-enabled services. Finally, chapter four identifies the case study countries existing WTO ICT-related commitments, pointing out what changes are necessary to make deeper commitments and hence strengthen credibility as reliable trading partners.
