Delegation from The Gambia Pays Study Visit to the NCA

The National Communications Authority (NCA) on Thursday September 9, 2021 hosted a seven (7)-member delegation from The Gambia led by the country’s Minister for Information and Communication Infrastructure, Mr. Ebrima Sillah. Other members of the delegation included officials from the telecommunications regulator, as well as from the main service provider of The Gambia. The visit was to understudy Ghana’s successes in the ICT and digital initiatives, projects and policies and to understand the legal framework governing the digital and infrastructural economy of Ghana.

 

Mr. Joe Anokye, the Director General of the NCA, who welcomed the delegation, gave an overview of the mandate of the NCA. He also highlighted projects that have been undertaken by the regulator over the past few years such as the installation of the Broadcast Monitoring Systems (BMS), the Type Approval Laboratories, the establishment of the Cybersecurity Division and the creation of the Authority’s Computer Emergency Response Team (NCA-CERT), Common Platform and the Network Monitoring System (NMS). He further stated that the National Communications Authority has worked to create an environment that promotes fair and sustainable competition which encourages innovation and protects stakeholder interests while also facilitating universal access to high-quality communications services for everyone in Ghana.

Briefing the delegation on the country's digitalization initiatives, Mr. Anokye stated that the Government of Ghana is playing a critical role in the establishment of a robust framework to promote digitisation as Ghana embarks on a SIM Registration exercise. He reiterated that the SIM Registration exercise which is to be rolled out in October is important to the country in implementing a credible National Registry of all citizen which will further reduce crime related issues.
