Welcome to Episode 93 of Good Will Hunters from the Development Policy Centre.
Today’s episode is the second in a two-part series on the World Bank Group, where we speak to the experts leading the Bank’s work in the region. In this episode I speak to Shivnesh Prasad, Digital Development Specialist with the World Bank in Fiji.
Shivnesh has over 15 years of experience in the public sector in Fiji, including as the Director of Communications at the Fijian Ministry of Communications, as well as Chairman of the Telecommunications Authority of Fiji. He has overseen various important initiatives for Government, including the rollout of 4G and now 5G, the installation of submarine cables and more.
So, why is digital development so important to Fiji? Is a true digital revolution occurring? And how will technology change the way Fijians live and work? We discuss all this, and the implications for development, in this episode.
Enjoy the episode.
