New Delhi, April 28, 2017: Ken Research has recently announced its latest publication titled “National Broadband Plans in Asia-Pacific: Focus on Bridging the Digital Divide to Spur Economic Growth” which aims at provides in-depth market analysis, information and insights into the Telecom industry. It describes Telecom industry's growth prospects by segment and category and outlines a comprehensive overview of the global and local demographics. It further provides the detailed competitive setting, distribution channels and regulatory policies in the Broadband Policy.

Development in the Asia-Pacific region has been very unhinged, and there is great variation in connectivity across the region. In these countries, more government and policy support was required to accelerate infrastructure growth and increase external connectivity. Governments are taking lead on infrastructure development, to build alliances incorporating diverse government departments and private industry, and to extend broadband-friendly industrial policy. Governments are also looking to improve infrastructure synergy and find ways to abridge the process of obtaining rights of way. They are in need of new buildings and overhaul projects to include fiber connections, produce explicit standards for compensation for eminent domain, and start universal service funds.

The market in the broadband industry is on the verge of a sharp growth and also broadening its horizons. Various factors such as setting the minimum seed of the internet and making everything wire are few steps from the side of the govt. Governments and operators are actively investing in the broadband infrastructure to attain goals laid under the national broadband plans. Government are extending support in the form of funds as well as introducing regulatory measures and offering spectrum.

The key players in the spice and seasoning industry are China Telecom, Telekom Malaysia, PT Palapa Ring Barat, the Pandawa Lima, OpenNet consortium, StarHub, Telstra, Optus, BSNL, PGCIL, Railtel, China Unicom, Northpower Limited, Waikato Networks Limited, WEL Networks, Waipa Networks, Enable Services Limited, Christchurch City Holdings, Chorus Limited, Chunghwa Telecom, Far EasTone, CAT, TOT.

Therefore the telecom industry is set to grow in the Asia Pacific region but there are certain measures that need to take care of such as digitization of the procedures, making most of the things online and setting up of optic fibre is the main solution and need of the hour as well.

New Delhi, April 28, 2017: The Draft National MSME Policy has called for setting up an overarching policy-making authority headed by the Prime Minister as also empowering the Centre to change investment limits instead of being “forced” to go to Parliament.

“To accord the importance the MSME sector deserves, it is imperative to create an apex authority under the chairmanship of the Prime Minister. The authority may be called the National MSME Authority,” says the report prepared by former Cabinet Secretary Prabhat Kumar, adding that the “Act of 2006 may accordingly be amended”.

The report of the one-man committee was presented to the government in January and is likely to be discussed at the meeting of the National Board for MSMEs, chaired by Minister Kalraj Mishra here on Thursday.

With regard to communication and consultation with States, the report has suggested an institutional forum as also an advisory service.

The draft also sets aside two proposals for redefining MSMEs on the basis of turnover or employment, saying that these “do not add anything worthwhile over the present system”, and suggested that a group be set up to look into the structure of different industries and suggest investment bands for each sub-sector.

Single law

A single law for micro and small enterprises employing less than 40 persons, social security cover for micro entrepreneurs, reassessment of the impact of bankruptcy code on MSMEs, replication of the Telangana model for statutory clearances of start-ups, creation of land banks by State governments and a dedicated TV channel are some of the measure proposed in the draft.

The draft policy also proposes raising the limit of MUDRA loans for micro units from ₹50,000 to ₹1 lakh, for small units from ₹50,000-5 lakh to ₹1-10 lakh and for medium enterprises from ₹5-10 lakh to ₹10-25 lakh.

“MUDRA should also be scaled up as a financial institution responsible for the entire micro enterprises sector in the country,” says the report.

Thursday’s board meeting will also discuss expanding the mandatory 20 per cent annual public procurement policy to include “all statutory and autonomous bodies and other societies and trusts owned by the Government of India”, as also Central universities and technology centres.

New Delhi, April 28, 2017: The Commerce and Industry Ministry is working on fixing the nuts and bolts of a policy to give preference to domestically manufactured goods in government procurement with a view to promoting Make in India.

“The policy would be in tune with the Make in India initiative. Both the departments of commerce and industry have advocated such a policy,” a senior commerce ministry official said.

The official said the global trade rules of the World Trade Organisation (WTO) allow member countries to prefer domestically made products for government procurement purposes.
