“We are confident that the cooperation between the two regulatory bodies would develop the sector in respective countries. Our experts will share TCRA skills in managing communications in a modern point of view,” said Mr Daffa, who served as the acting managing director.
INCM’s head of delegation Francisco Chate expressed the expectations of his team to learn from TCRA’s competence in technological experience in managing telecommunications technology and services in the continent.
“In our view, TCRA has valuable knowledge to share with us, particularly regarding how best to manage and enhance communications services, particularly telephone and internet services,” said Mr Chate who doubles as an INCM member of the board of directors.
