We are pleased to see that the Government has accepted the proposal to expand the 5G network, and will further amend the legislation next year to ensure that appropriate space will be made available in new buildings for installation of mobile communication facilities. The initiative will facilitate the telecommunications industry on their architectural blueprint development of 5G network, and will also steer the direction for the development of application solutions including finance, retail, education, and art.
