MMA is excited to be participating in such a critical policy area, one that has the potential to help ensure South Africa can realise its potential as a nation a well as the values enshrined in our constitution. MMA has developed the following four key areas which speak directly to the underlying foundational principles which should be reflected in the ICT Policy:
Children and ICTs;
Broadband as a human rights issue;
Digital information and digital literacy;
Broadcasting and Diversity, and,
Issues of accountability and transparency.
The importance of the ICT policy cannot be underestimated, not only will it help shape our media environment it will also give an indication if we are to realise our nation’s capabilities and grow.
