Emerging Telecom Market Forums Ц BRIC Opportunities 2008 is jointly organized by Information Gatekeepers Inc. (IGI) and Paul, Hastings, Janofsky & Walker LLP. It will be held at the offices of Paul Hastings in Washington, D.C. The event will be co-chaired by Dr. Hui Pan of IGI, and Tara Giunta, Partner of Paul Hastings Janofsky & Walker LLP.
"Brazil, Russia, India and China offer tremendous opportunities to foreign communications equipment makers and service providers. However, foreign companies encounter numerous challenges in terms of market access, policy uncertainty, and different business cultures. This Forum offers a great opportunity for anyone who is interested in doing business in the BRIC countries," said Dr. Hui Pan, Co-Chair of the Forum and Chief Economist of Information Gatekeepers.
"With mature economies and telecom markets largely saturated and facing further consolidation and constrained credit environments, emerging markets offer both established companies and early entrants the potential growth necessary to attract the investment and financing necessary to fund construction and realize commercial objectives. However, these markets also present unique challenges that require companies to understand the business, legal and regulatory landscape," said Tara Giunta, Co-Chair of the Forum and Partner of Paul, Hastings, Janofsky & Walker LLP.
