"Tencent is expanding its activities to establish itself overseas and in the B2B market; such a move may threaten operators outside of China, but there are opportunities for collaboration."

- a discussion of possible areas for collaboration between Tencent and operators outside China
- recommendations for operators on how to address these opportunities.
