ICT Minister asks proprietors in EAC to push for harmonized policies
The Minister of ICT and National Guidance Frank Tumwebaze has asked ICT proprietors in the 6 East African Community states to push for harmonized policies for the whole region to ease integration as well as achieving digital inclusion for everyone.
Tumwebaze says EAC needs harmonized data prices, a one area network as well as interconnection across boarders between the different country agencies as a way of quickening the process of making the region a one big village that can work together for development.
He was speaking at the East African Communications organization (EACO) 22nd congress on promotion of ICT through local content development that is being held Kampala.
The regional 4-day conference is being hosted by Uganda Communications Commission and it has attracted country representatives from the EA countries, telecom companies as well as ICT developers.
