Ghana’s capital city of Accra is hosting a workshop on Mobile Number Portability (MNP) and quality mobile service.
The 5-day workshop is organised by the National Communications Authority (NCA) Ghana, in collaboration with the West Africa Telecommunications Regulations Assembly (WATRA) and is being attended by nine ECOWAS countries. It is intended to provide opportunities for the delegates to benefit from experience and knowledge of NCA in the area of MNP.
Declaring the workshop open, Ghana’s Minister for Communications, Dr. Edward Omane-Boamah, said Ghana’s success in the implementation of the MNP policy could be largely attributed to the initial advanced preparations and planning as well as the effective collaboration amongst all the key stakeholders within the sector.
Dr Omane-Boamah said the Mobile Network Operators would also provide insight into the management of the MNP service and decipher some challenges that they have had to endure.
“The quality of service, which is dear to consumers’ heart will also be touched on,” the Minister said.
