Solomon Islands Digital Economy Workshop – November 6-7, Mendana Hotel

Solomon Islands Digital Economy Workshop 2019


The Coral Sea Cable is expected to commercially operational at the end of 2019. With the World Bank’s assistance, the SIG has been conducting a review of the current Solomon Islands ICT landscape and identifying appropriate strategies and initiatives to fully and effectively exploit the expected expansion of low-cost internet access for economic development and SIG operations. The outcome of the review suggests that ICT is a vibrant and growing component of the Solomon Islands society and economy but there are several fundamental enablers for digital economy and digital government development that require attention and investment.

The Intended outcome of the workshop is a shared understanding of the key opportunities and challenges with digital economy development in the Solomon Islands.
