National E-commerce Committees and Sub-committees

Kiribati, Papua New Guinea, Solomon Islands, Tonga, Tuvalu, Vanuatu

About the Program

As Measure 1.1.2 of the Pacific Regional E-commerce Strategy and Roadmap recommends, there is the need to establish national E-commerce committees modelled on the Pacific E-commerce Governance to strengthen cooperation between government institutions, regulatory bodies and leading private sector partners.

A regional e-commerce governance is essential to monitor, coordinate and provide strategic oversight over the implementation of the Pacific Regional E-commerce Strategy and Roadmap. The regional e-commerce governance comprises representatives of member governments, the private sector, donor partners and development agencies. The Pacific Islands Forum Secretariat serves as the committee’s secretariat.

Similar governance mechanisms are established at the national level too in order to coordinate the implementation of the respective country’s strategies.
