This paper investigates the influence that governance transparency has on the choice of Internet-based Business reporting methods in three countries within the Asia-Pacific: Australia, Singapore and Malaysia. Issues related to national culture and Internet pervasiveness are also considered. Based on a sample of thirty companies in each of the three countries, support is found for governance transparency, rather than national culture or Internet pervasiveness as the explanation of the adoption of particular Internet communication techniques by companies.
