The building that houses the National Frequency Management Unit (NFMU) will be demolished and a new structure will be constructed at the site of the current facility in Lodge, Georgetown.
Head of the Presidential Secretariat Dr. Roger Luncheon advised that the current structure will be replaced by a three-storey concrete building, 1,800 square feet, and will house Government and state telecommunication broadcasting entities.
At his post-Cabinet briefing today, Dr. Luncheon said that the NFMU will be hosting the visit of an International Telecommunication Unit (ITU) expert during the period July 29 to August 2.
He explained that the specialist will be here to provide guidance to Guyana in development of the roadmap for its transition from analog to digital terrestrial television broadcasting.
According to Dr. Luncheon, the ITU expert will meet with the national roadmap team, the representatives of the telecommunication and broadcasting sectors in Guyana.
He listed among the likely agenda of this engagement, the examination of the policies, guidelines and other likely details that will be applicable to Guyana’s transition from the analog to the digital system.
