The National Communications Authority (NCA), on Monday, 11th March, 2019, welcomed a delegation from the Public Utilities Regulatory Authority (PURA) of Gambia on a study visit to the Authority. The 6-member delegation comprising staff from the Gambian regulator, PURA, the Ministry of ICT and an incumbent telecommunications operator, GAMTEL are being hosted by the NCA for four (4) days. 

 

PURA and its accompanying organisations seek to benchmark and share experiences from the NCA in the areas of Interconnection, Cost Models and Wholesale Tariffs, National and International Broadband Services, Infrastructure Sharing and Service Level Agreements amongst other emerging issues in the ICT sector.

 

Welcoming the delegation, the Deputy Director General for Technical Operations, Mr. Henry Kanor said governments worldwide have been working to ensure that there is access to communications services across their countries to give the needed boost for development. He added that the Authority is moving beyond traditional regulations to explore new ways of regulating the communications industry, especially in view of the fact that the entire world is migrating to digital platforms and that there needs to be regulatory interventions which can harness the digital transactions and services being carried over and on communications services.
