“Booz & Company Offers to Create a Regulating Structure for East-West Information Main Line”
In the Nov. 11 edition of ABC.AZ Daily News (Azerbaijan), Booz & Company Partner Rainer Bernnat (Europe) detailed aspects of the Booz & Company proposal for creation of an East-West super-information highway. The firm’s comprehensive strategy program, presented at a meeting of Communications Ministers of CIS, Europe, and Asia, is a cost-effective model for building a trans-Eurasian ICT broadband infrastructure. It would do so by kick-starting the broadband connectivity of several central European states considered a long way from major global data highways—while creating opportunities for commerce and e-government. Included in the meeting were representatives of Ministries of Communications of Ukraine, Belarus, Slovenia, Estonia, Russia, Moldova, Lithuania, Kazakhstan, Georgia, Iran, and India.
