A special session in Parliament  was arranged by the Honourable Prime Minister to assist parliamentarians in better understanding the importance and significance of information and communications technology (ICT), and also about the needed actions to support improving access for every Ni-Vanuatu to new technologies in a way that would improve their social and economic well-being.

"As you well know, our ultimate objective is an Educated, Healthy and Wealthy Vanuatu. Effective use of modern ICTs is indispensable in achieving this vision." wrote the Honorable Prime Minister in his message to this special session.

The special session was held on Wednesday 29th August 2012, and was conducted jointly by the Government of the Republic of Vanuatu, Office of the Vanuatu Government Chief Information Officer (GCIO), Office of the Telecommunications & Radiocommunications Regulator and by the Secretariat of the Pacific Community (SPC).

The session included presentations, lively discussions and talks on:

  • need for National ICT Policy, 
  • work undertaken for the iGOV Initiative, a Government enterpise  network linking government offices and with applications to improve every part of government and its services to society,
  • development and promotion in the telecommunication sector, and
  • education for the benefits and risks with ICT.

Other topics discussed included the need for expansion and access of mobile and internet in rural centres, schools, incentives on provision of computers, and further support, education and assistance needed for parliament and all government establishments to advance ICT
