Ultimately, “digital transformation is about people”, Mr. Derek Mane said, noting the importance of increasing equal access to digital means for each community in Solomon Islands.
Echoing the same sentiments Mr Vardon Hoca, UNDP Project Manager emphasized this process does imply knowledge and skills of international and national experts, “Without a doubt, this is a lot to accomplish. Fortunately, we have a lot to build on. Given our mandate and expertise, UNDP is uniquely positioned to offer the Government a comprehensive approach to digital issues.”
He also stressed the importance of further cooperation. He added: “We will continue to work with the Government of Solomon Islands to identify areas in digital transformation where more investment is needed so that all Solomon Islanders can benefit from digital services and innovations.”
With the 2030 Agenda as a guiding thread, UNDP aims to harness technology’s transformative power and ensure the best possible digital future for all.
