Universal Access in Liberalised Services Markets
Focused on experience in four sectors: telecommunications, water and sanitation, financial services and electricity.
“Access to basic services plays an important role in both individual well-being and a country’s economic development. For this reason, general availability of these services to citizens, regardless of income level and geographical location, has generally been viewed as an important public policy goal.”
