GSMA APAC 5G Forum Community has launched the “5G FOCUS COUNTRY SERIES” virtual roundtable focusing on the 5G development, experience, and status of pioneering countries in preparation to and/or post commercial deployment of 5G services from commercial, technology, policy and ecosystem perspectives. The first meeting started with Korea on the 28th of May 2020 from 16:00 to 18:00 (GMT+9, KST) as it was one year and one month since the launch of commercial 5G services in Korea.  The series will then follow with virtual roundtables for 5G FOCUS Malaysia in July, 5G FOCUS Japan in September, and 5G FOCUS Singapore/Australia in November.
