Telecommunications and Broadcasting Liberalisation in Thailand
Mano, Phummara [email@example.com] (2009) Telecommunications and Broadcasting Liberalisation in Thailand. [Dissertation (University of Nottingham only)] (Unpublished)
Thailand had suffered from a poor telecommunications and a poor broadcasting service until it has obliged itself to the WTO commitment to liberalise its services sectors. The telecommunications and broadcasting sectors hence have been scheduled to further the liberalisation regime. However, the telecommunications sector is the only sector that has been fully liberalised. The broadcasting sector instead has put on hold. Until lately, the government has proposed the integration of telecommunications and broadcasting sectors to be under one regulatory body. The House of Representatives has already accepted the proposal. Though, the convergence entity has yet founded. This dissertation examine the impacts derive from the major stakeholders in the markets represented in policy and regulations, political affairs, industry competition, economics, and Thai monarchy. In the end, the case study shows that the reason deters the liberalisation process is from such forces.
