dc.description.abstractOne of the major achievements of the World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS) was the global discussion, agreement and partnership towards the internationally agreed information society indicators with a view to measuring ICT for development. Based on discussions prior to and during the WSIS, the Geneva Plan of Action made a number of suggestions and recommendations which included the establishment of coherent and internationally comparable indicator systems. <p></p> This paper aims to review progress made in some countries and assess how a subregional approach could accelerate the promotion of the above indicators by sharing knowledge, expertise and experience. In particular, this paper examines the case of the ASEAN countries and how successful examples of Thailand, Malaysia and Singapore, for instance, could be applied to and assists other ASEAN countries through regional cooperation mechanisms and frameworks.
