Re: Was it ever a good idea? This is a risk in emerging markets. And I wouldn't even call North Korea an emerging market. It's a dangerous market to run a business in.

The only hope here is that so many people get their hands on cell phones there that business needs dictate a change in policy. But I have a hard time seeing that happen anytime soon.

Re: Was it ever a good idea? Wouldnt Huawei been the only vendor allowed to supply equipment into N. Korea?  Orascom would have setup some sort of global supply agreement with Huawei so prices in Italy, Canada would have been same as in N. Korea.  Dont think capital expense of hardware was too much a burden on Orascom.

Was it ever a good idea? Orascom had to know this was a big possiblity going into this deal. I can't imagine this was much of a surprise to them. Sure it sucks for them, but it was a gamble and right now it's not paying off.
