Governments and especially businesses are confronted with an "adapt or die" scenario, particularly in developing  countries, to fall behind in technology and innovation could increase the gap with wealthier, more advanced economies. 

1. Unique opportunities for less Developed Countries

E-commerce presents unique opportunities for less developed countries to greatly expand their markets, both internally and externally. Externally, the Internet and other technologies may allow for low-cost international trade, even for small, local businesses. Internally, many groups of citizens who had been considered "marginalized" and "unbanked" may gain affordable access to financial services, and may thus participate more readily in all aspects of the economy.

2. Development of Rural or Local business

Rural areas considered too costly or unprofitable for business development might increasingly become a focus for investment and market expansion, and also for relocating corporate offices.

3. Development of Microfinance Institutions

Development of microfinance institutions to provide financial services to the semi urban and rural areas.

4. Development of E-learning and M-learning

5. Increases of E-governance initiatives

access to financial services through rapidly growing mobile market.

7. Globally reach of Micro enterprises
