One of the lessons for Fiji from the 2016 Commonwealth Telecommunications Organisation Forum has been that there is no need to reinvent the wheel.

Attorney-General, Minister for Economy and Communications, Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum, highlighted this yesterday as he closed the forum at the Sheraton Fiji Resort on Denarau Island.

Mr Sayed-Khaiyum said it was always good to tap into the resources available by the Commonwealth Telecommunications Organisation and International Telecommunications Union.

At the same time, he said, there are also resources and experiences from other countries which we can learn from.

“Sometimes of course laws are tweaked to specifically address the issues pertaining to the individual countries and that’s how we can also be able to tap into that,” he said.

 

Meeting standards

Mr Sayed-Khaiyum said in terms of telecommunications, it was critical to continuously improve our services.

Also important, he said was continuously improving security for example maintaining privacy, protecting trade, commerce, investment and our ability to meet international standards.

He said this is because it does then open a door to the outside world.

“It gives people a particular level of confidence which otherwise would not have happened if you do not have the nearest international standards,” he said.

Mr Sayed-Khaiyum said such forums enable us to perhaps know and find out about what exactly is happening.
