VEON's Emerging Markets are characterized by low data penetration rates, young populations and extensive mobile coverage; these elements are growth drivers in the region. New opportunities will be seized by the further expansion of 3G networks.Moreover new 4G/LTE spectrum opportunities will provide the capacity required to meet growing digital needs.

The evolution of new platforms, like mobile financial services in Pakistan, is both generating additional sources of revenue whilst accelerating financial growth. The expansion of mono-brand shops in Algeria and the introduction of branded smartphones will accelerate data adoption. The rapid take-up of social network usage in Bangladesh shows the potential for self-serve, e-commerce and new content partnerships.

These markets provide significant revenue growth potential at a time when many more established markets served by our competitors are plateauing.
