Chamber of Telecommunications Calls on Communications Minister

The Minister for Communications, Mrs. Ursula Owusu-Ekuful has re-iterated her commitment to transform all post offices to provide e- government services throughout the country. She said the post offices would be well equipped with high speed internet connectivity in order to complement the Digitization drive of government. This she said will ensure that government services were decentralized across the country.
The Hon. Minster said this when the Chief Executive of the Ghana Chamber of Telecommunications paid a courtesy call on her at the Ministry. 
She indicated that, the Ministry was embarking on a number of initiatives to realize the Digitization agenda of government.
Mrs. Owusu-Ekuful noted that the drive to digitize the country largely depends on the youth to provide various innovations for the uptake of technology. She hinted of the establishment of innovation hubs and labs to give the youth some training to provide innovations.
”A major stakeholder’s forum will be organized early next year to review the Telecommunications Policy which came into force some twelve years ago and therefore woefully outdated and not fit for purpose”, she added.
The Chief Executive of Ghana Chamber of Telecommunications, Ing. Kenneth Ashigbey expressed his gratitude to the Minister and affirmed his commitment to support the good initiatives of the Ministry. He commended the Ministry and government for the introduction of the Digital and Property Address System and said the policy needs to be given the needed support for all Ghanaians to embrace it.
He said his outfit had developed a paper to help raise the dwindling revenue within the sector.
