Macao - The Macau Special Administrative Region (SAR), commonly known as Macau or Macao is one of the two special administrative regions (SARs) of the People’s Republic of China (PRC), along with Hong Kong.

Portuguese traders first settled in Macau in the 16th century. After the Opium War in 1841, most of the foreign merchants in Macau left for Hong Kong, and as a result business and economic activities in Macau declined. Administered by Portugal until the handover in 1999, it was the oldest European colony in China. Since then Macau has developed industries such as textiles, electronics and toys, as well as a notable tourist industry, which boasts a wide range of hotels, resorts, stadiums, restaurants and casinos. What remains unchanged through Macau’s history is Macau’s strong economic links with Hong Kong, one of the East Asian Tigers and the Pearl River Delta region in mainland China. With a good infrastructure, Macau provides financial and banking services, staff training, transport and communications support.

Macao Telecommunications and Broadband Reports

Macao Telecoms Market Overview and Statistics Report
Armenia’s telecommunications sector is small but growing. With over 700,000 fixed-line subscribers for a population of nearly 4 million people, the level of investment in infrastructure and new services has begun to increase. There are, however, major structural issues to be addressed in the sector. Although ArmenTel, the country’s national telecom provider, was granted exclusive rights to the provision of all telecommunications services in Armenia until 2013 (apart from data services), a second mobile operator launched its network in mid-2005 after the government awarded a licence to K-Telecom. This report looks at the overall state of telecommunications in Armenia and provides a selection of pertinent market statistics.
