27 June 2017

The last twelve months has heralded dramatic and unexpected changes in the political, business, and economic environment. While economic and technology trends impact all business sectors in different ways, its impact has been felt especially strongly by the telecoms sector.

BDO’s Global Technology, Media & Telecommunications team has conducted the annual Telecommunications Risk Factor Survey and identified the five main risks that are keeping telecoms executives in the Asia Pacific region awake at night:

  1. Fast arrival of new technologies
  2. Access to finance
  3. Currency fluctuation
  4. Interest rate fluctuations
  5. Liquidity and cash flow risks.

BDO has identified that telecoms’ growth prospects will depend on how successful they are in navigating the complex risk landscape ahead and reshaping their businesses to take full advantage of future opportunities.
