While still lagging behind many of its neighbours in the Asia-Pacific region, the ICT sector in Papua New Guinea has seen significant progress in recent years, which has helped ensure expansion of coverage and offerings. An increase in sector investment has helped both local and international companies expand into rural areas, while telecoms providers have also been able to bring more affordable and faster services to a greater share of the population. However, isolated parts of this large and sparsely populated country are still having difficulties in achieving connectivity. To address these challenges the government is looking to improve infrastructure in rural communities and upgrade the mobile data network from 3G to 4G in more parts of the country. This chapter contains an interview with Jacky Xu Qiang, CEO, Huawei Pacific.
