Australian businesses run the risk of missing out on the Asian internet boom, Sarv Girn, chief information officer at the Reserve Bank of Australia has warned.

Girn points out that internet penetration rates in Asia are very low, particularly when compared with Australia, but they are growing more rapidly than the rest of the world.
