Regional review of the pilot assessment of the Eurasian Telecommunications Management Index (ETGI)


Taking into account the significance of telecommunication sector’s development, consulting company Promotank in a colaboration with the Public Foundation Civil Initiative on Internet Policy (CIIP) conducted a general review of pilot assessments using the Eurasian Telecommunications Management Index (ETGI) methodology in the period of 2017-2018 in six countries Armenia, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan. ETGI is a specialized multy – country index which measures a current state of sectoral management in telecommunications. It’s a complex index joining a set of indicators on a state level that insures a broad comparative look at the specific characteristics of national telecommunications industries and country climates on a regular base.

The preliminary results of the ETGI assessments are informative and can positively affect country climates under conditions of the active participation of stakeholders and, above all, decision-makers in this process.

Summarized Results

and In a regional pilot survey covering six countries, despite the small sample size, clearly, three contries with close data results can be traced. The first group includes Armenia (0.78), which was given the highest score among the pilot countries and Kyrgyzstan (0.70), is not far from the leader of the sample. These two countries did not get the best possible scores on the index but still have moderately high country assessments, due to their comparative advantage in institutional management, regulatory framework and, generally, more favorable sectoral and country contexts.

The second group includes Kazakhstan (0.49), Azerbaijan (0.42), and Uzbekistan (0.41), located at 21-29 basis points from the lower boundary of the first group. This group has relatively weak indicators within the ETGI framework due to low institutional valuation, average or below average indicators for the regulatory framework, and generally less favorable country and sectoral contexts. The latter group includes only Tajikistan (0.31), which has the lowest total average among the pilot countries. A low score is explained by the low levels of institutional assessments and indicators below the average level both at the level of the regulatory framework and at the level of the country and industry context.
