Current Situation in Fiji cont...
  • Must have a big picture focus cater for
    Fijian needs prosperity
  • The Going Mobile future finding, providing
    adequate spectrum challenge
  • Fixed line services dying reliance on
    provision of declining rapidly
  • Regulating for effective competition, public
    benefit with the interest of consumers a
    priority

8
Current Situation in Fiji cont....
  • Convergence of Services how will
    industry/regulators meet the challenges to
    service public need demand?
  • The increasing reliance on telecommunications for
    essential services eg medical, commerce,
    banking, purchases, communication (internet),
    information
  • From Capacity to Connectivity Network access
    interconnection

9
Current Situation in Fiji cont....
  • From availability to use Universal access
    service, developing community wide digital
    literacy
  • A Digital Future Regulatory challenges in a
    brave new world privacy, security neutrality
  • On-going regulatory role TAF to be around for
    a long, long, time

10
Challenges
  • A  Small Island Developing State (SIDS) with high
    aims but difficulties of achieving that  with
    population revenue  limitations,   wide-spread
    geography
  • Wants to be a "regional telecommunication hub, -
    positioning itself to do so
  • This has been highlighted in Telecom Promulgation
    2008 as one of the Ministers responsibilities

11
Challenges cont..
  • But - how to achieve this where to start from?
  • Many questions to ask including how to achieve
    universal access?
  • Fiji is 2nd largest market in the South Pacific
    Island Group
  • Telecommunications services will be the key
    driver of economic growth for Fiji
  • The future is in Mobile
  • Consumer empowerment is the key driver

12
Regulatory Challenges
  • So much needed so soon
  • Competing priorities so need a prioritised
    approach
  • Moving to the "new" world of regulation/liberalisa
    tion instead incumbency provision of services
  • Focus on most pressing issues
  • Critical need for effective communication with
    all stakeholders industry players, MoC, FCC,
    Consumer Council MoI(NALS)

13
Standardization Challenges
  • Who to draw from?
  • ITU APT can assist greatly
  • How to participate? Tyranny of distance
  • How to get a national view? Wide spread geography
  • How to be effective internationally? Need to
    have a Pacific wide or at least a Pacific Country
    voice view

14
Standardization Challenges cont...
  • Efficient effective way is to participate in
    APT regional meetings targeted ITU meetings
  • Make as much use of on-line services as possible
    - but how to find it in the first place?  (TAF
    currently is a good (bad) example - very
    difficult to find out about as we do not yet have
    a website

15
Standardization Challenges cont...
  • When TAFs website established, how will
    stakeholders - and particularly consumers/users
    know? TAF has to be a communicative organisation
  • Use of Regional Forums
  • Regional cooperation a must. One SID can not go
    it alone!

16
Thought to leave you with
  • Can standards (really) motivate growth and
    universal access in an island nation such as
    Fiji?
  • If so, how? Welcome your thoughts
  • Is there experience in other parts of the world
    that we can learn from?
  • Manufacturers have always played a key role in
    standards-making, so are there regional
    manufacturers who are keen to test new
    technologies in our markets?
  • Could this lead to new standards being evolved?

17
Thought to leave you with cont...
  • Fiji can not afford to set up elaborate testing
    facilities.
  • We adopt an attestation form of technical
    standards (adopt/recognise)
  • But how do we chose the standards that will serve
    our market best?
  • Some standards may in fact limit the ability of
    some regional manufacturers to bid on systems
    here, thus, would inhibit innovation growth.
  • How do we ensure that this doesnt happen?

18
Thought to leave you with cont...
  • I dont have all the answers to some of these
    questions very challenging
  • Encourage you to assist me with your advice
    during this session (or out of hours)?
  • Thought/possibility to leave you with
  • Why not use Fiji as a test bed and
  • test market for emerging standards?
