I write this sitting in the office of the Pacific ICT Regulatory Resource Center. Thus the interest in Pacific Island Countries and Territories (PICTs).
Going through the IDI rankings, I was sorry to see that only Fiji (rank 82); Tonga (rank 101) and Solomon Islands (rank 125) are included. Both Fiji and Solomon Islands have fallen back by one place, even though their scores have increased from 3.79 to 3.99 (Fiji) and 1.91 to 197 (Solomon Islands). Tonga’s score also increased from 3.09 to 3.23, though that did not change its rank.
Why do the other PICTs not get included in the IDI? PiRRC seeks to change this, with the cooperation of its member regulatory agencies.
