At the Commonwealth Telecommunications Organisation (CTO), Seychelles will be represented by Cable and Wireless (C&W). However, other firms may also now join the body as partners.

This news follows a change in the CTO’s constitution as there are many Information Communication and Technology (ICT) firms within different Commonwealth countries. According to Seychelles Government and representatives of local ICT companies, this has been revealed following the visit of Dr Ekwow Spio-Garbrah, the chief executive officer of the CTO, on February 19-23, 2007.

In accordance with Cable and Wireless, Spio-Garbrah’s visit enabled him to meet other ICT operators and promote CTO among them as well as to call on C&W to strengthen CTO’s relations with the company.

In Seychelles, C&W has recently been the only company offering ICT. Therefore, it will represent the country, however, represented Seychelles, but C&W’s representatives say that other ICT firms can now be involved in their own right within the Commonwealth Telecommunications Organisation.
