National Broadband Policy

The movement of the Government towards digital transformation makes the revision of the 2009 policy a necessity.  ICT Policy should be updated every 5 years.

Policy needs to be created to keep track of all new ICT policy issues across the entire government.  Need a sector wide govt ICT policy.

Need to create a broadband plan for PNG so can better track and manage Connectivity, Access, and Digital Development/ digital government issues country-wide

Goal is to create an enabling environment for ICT investment in PNG
