New markets are expected to emerge as the digital space expands.

Four telecommunication companies recently upgraded its services to strengthen its digital and technical capabilities.

Vodafone Fiji, Digicel Pacific, Datec Fiji and Telecom Fiji are putting Fiji on the global technology map.

Vodafone Fiji launched its M-PAiSA Mastercard on Wednesday, allowing users to use EFTPOS across the world.

Digicel Fiji announced last week Government’s approval for the company to trial the 5G technology in Fiji.

It has been granted 12 months to carry out what is hoped to be a game changer in the telecommunication company, which Telstra bought last year.

“The benefits of 5G are far reaching at a time when everyone wants smoother video calls, faster downloads and seamless browsing,” said Mr Kamikamica.

Telecom Fiji launched its first phase of fibre optic extension project between Savusavu and Labasa, on Friday.

Datec Fiji partnered with Salesforce, an American cloud-based software company, to build capacity around new and emerging technologies, and discuss the latest ICT trends.

Datec Fiji will provide ground support for Salesforce customers in the Pacific.

Mr Kamikamica said the Government would launch businessNOW Fiji, a one-stop-shop designed to improve the ease of doing business.

“We are looking at ways to reduce bottlenecks, burdensome red-tapes and increase the ease of doing business,” he said.
