Abstract The countries around the Pacific Basin make up a dynamic growth area consisting of countries which for centuries were economically isolated from each other. This article examines the economic arguments on the rapid spread of modern information technologies into the developing countries of the Pacific. The reluctance of some domestic telecommunication monopolies to adopt digital communication technology, and the implications of regulatory postures on transborder data flows and multinational corporations are debated. The author comments on the costs and benefits which new information technologies can offer to the developing Pacific.
