CommunicAsia, Singapore, June 18, 2009 - (ACN Newswire) - Government leadership plays a key role in fostering a vibrant infocomm ecosystem that helps drive economic and social growth. In the current global recession, this role becomes ever more important.

Today, Singapore is ranked tops as the world's most business-friendly country for three consecutive years since 2007, according to the "The Doing Business Report 2009" by the World Bank.
Thanks to the foresight of the government in its continuous investments in infocomm to empower businesses with the launch of the Online Business Licensing Service, OBLS in 2004 and BizFinx (Business Financials in XBRL) to help cut red tapes and to boost transparency and governance in financial reporting.
