The Kingdom Keepers's curator insight, February 4, 2014 9:13 AM

Less developed countries will not develop at the rate they are going, so it is nice to see more developed countries stepping in to give these less fortunate countries a boost. They can most certainly be a model of industrialization for these countries to mimic, and will hopefully follow in their steps for a successful development. -Brooke 

BandKids13-14's curator insight, February 4, 2014 9:21 AM

It is a great idea for more developed countries to help less developed coutnries in their deveoping process. A lot of coutries are developing less than most and they need help to catch up with the world. The whole world is developing very quickly and there are some countries that are being left behind. It is  a great move in Chinas part to help other countries.

1 April 2015 | Moves towards fibre-optic broadband are beginning to pick up across Latin America, with a number of high profile contracts awarded by governments over the past year. Similarly, investment budgets from private operators reflect a growing desire to move towards fibre, as the more developed markets in the region have a sufficiently high broadband penetration to warrant a transition towards this next-generation network technology.

E-commerce might seem a bit superficial when more than 4 billion people are not on line and suffer from the digital divide but many projects are on their way to connect all those people and when they are connected they will have access to information and goods they cannot access at the present time. So e-commerce may not be, as superficial as we think, after all !
