China's telecommunication industry has always been a major bottleneck hindering its economic development. In the new wave of information revolution and with the imminent WTO deal, the telecommunication industry is undergoing a rapid deregulation process. In this paper, we build an economic model of China's electronic commerce markets, and discuss the possible directions for its expansion. In particular, we are interested in the impacts of this deregulation process on the welfare of the consumers, the firms and on the new roles of the government.
