Investments in ICT

The New Zealand Aid Programme’s ICT investment priority aims to expand ICT connectivity, access and use in the Pacific.

Our focus areas include:

  • Improve access to affordable, high-quality internet and telecommunication services.
  • Increase the use of ICT to deliver government services such as education and health.
  • Strengthening the online presence of the private sector in the Pacific and increase the availability of ICT tools for small and medium enterprises.
  • Build ICT skills and capability through school curricula, vocational training, and digital literacy training.
