Fiji’s information and technology industry and the growing BPO sector are expected to be revolutionised as the concept plans for the development of the new state-of-the-art Telecom ICT Park have been revealed.
Telecom Fiji Chief Executive Officer, Charles Goundar, says they are really excited about this project as it will enable a wide range of capabilities and offer opportunities to the youth who may be seeking a career in the fields of engineering and ICT.
Goundar says they are thankful to the Government for the support and cooperation towards this ambitious project.
The park will host a research and development centre, where emerging ICT technologies can be simulated and tested by students and enterprises, as well as an incubation centre geared for computing science graduates and budding business owners willing to undertake specific projects and explore options in setting up their businesses.
The data centre will host a range of major content platforms already hosted in the Telecom network such as Google, Netflix, Facebook, and Tik-Tok, and enable Fiji to attract other major content providers to also consider hosting their platforms in Fiji. The Telecom ICT park was announced in the 2021 National Budget by the Minister for Communications, Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum.
