Government inviting stakeholders to presentation on new Telecommunications Legal Regime

The Government of Guyana is inviting all stakeholders to a presentation on the new Telecommunications Legal Regime, to be held at the International Conference Centre (GICC), Liliendaal, Greater Georgetown, beginning at 09:00 hrs today. Today’s forum comes on the eve of the submission to the National Assembly tomorrow, of bills for a new Telecommunications Act, as well as accompanying consequential amendments to the Public Utilities Commission Act, paving the way for an open, liberalised, and competitive telecommunications sector for Guyana.

The anticipated enactment of the new telecommunications legal regime is intended to bring about a wide range of benefits, resulting in significant improvements to telecommunications for the Guyanese public. It will, for example:

- attract new market entrants and investors, while preserving the activities of current sector participants

- offer all Guyanese (both residential and business subscribers) greater choice, cheaper prices and higher quality telecommunications services, among other things. See more here....
