Published 07/25/16

Castries, Saint Lucia. July 25, 2016- The first in a series of media clinics for ECTEL Member States will be convened in Grenada, this Thursday July 28th.

The theme of the clinic which will draw media practitioners from across the Grenadian media landscape is: “Changes in the Regulatory Landscape for Electronic Communications-The Role of ECTEL.”

The media clinic aims to bring together media practitioners in ECTEL Member States, to familiarize them with the current regulatory landscape and the pertinent issues and trends affecting the sector and ECTEL’s role as regulator for the five sovereign states. It will also help the media to understand the role and regulatory functions of the national Commissions, in this case, the NTRC of Grenada.

Presentations will be made on topics such as the structure and functions of ECTEL based on the Treaty; structure of the NTRC; broadcasting and spectrum monitoring; and the role of the Minister for Telecommunications. The clinic will also look at the Electronic Communications Sector in the ECTEL Member States – key trends, indicators and statistics and discuss the role of data in regulation. The facilitators will also provide updates on new regulatory initiatives including the EC Bill, Regulations, Roaming and Number Portability.

Grenada’s Minister with responsibility for telecommunications and ECTEL Council Member, Honourable Gregory Bowen, will deliver the feature address at the opening of the clinic. The event will take place at the headquarters of the National Telecommunications Regulatory Commission. Similar events are also planned for the other four ECTEL Member States.

Thursday’s media clinic will be followed by the 75th meeting of the ECTEL Board of Directors at the Coyaba Beach Resort. Persons wishing to observe this meeting may contact the NTRC Grenada or ECTEL to indicate their interest.

The Board meeting will be held on Friday, July 29th.
