ITU Grants Liberia Extension To Digital Migration Program

2011-ITU-logo-officialThe International Telecommunications Union (ITU) has placed Liberia among countries whose deadline for the Digital Migration Program (DMP) has been extended from 2015 to 2020.

This disclosure is contained in the 2015 Annual Report of the Ministry of Posts and Telecommunications released recently.

The report stated that the extension is predicated upon the fact that the affected countries were not at the ITU conference when the DMP decision was reached.

Meanwhile, the Minister of Post and Telecommunication has acknowledged and commended the intervention of the Government of the Republic of China for donating a double-cabin pick-up to the ministry.

According to the report, the goodwill gesture by China has helped to ease the transportation constraint the ministry was faced with.

“We also look forward to an incessant support and cooperation from the President of Liberia, Madam Ellen J. Sirleaf and the National Legislature as we endeavor to deliver on outstanding projects and programs in 2016,” the report said.
