Undp ict for development in niue
UNDP ICT for Development in Niue

“The development of Information and Communications Technologies (ICTs) for a small and isolated country like Niue is paramount in the Government’s plans to minimize distances between Niueans living overseas and their homeland, as well as increase their access to vital information about national issues and development plans. It is their vision to build up the confidence of Niueans in their country and their Government”

SIV provides that content – through interregional networking under the Youth Internet Network
