The most important factor is the ICT infrastructure which is invested by both public and private sectors.

The current situations noted are a) the ICTs development policies and plans, b) the pace of electronic commerce infrastructure development based on statistics such as the network readiness and IP network size, and, c) electronic commerce laws and regulations.
