GOVERNMENT DIRECTIVE FORCES PRIVATE BUSINESS TO TURN OFF INTERNATIONAL & ONLINE INTERNET SERVICES.
MONDAY 9:00AM, 18TH APRIL 2016.

Business Development Manager – Peggy Veen states that if this happens, it would be one of the worst things that could happen to Niue – especially to businesses. Businesses will have no e-mail access, no internet banking, no immediate communication with suppliers and customers alike, both locally and internationally. This one behaviour seriously compromises Niue’s future and ability to perform, its reputation and people’s perception of setting up business and doing business here.

Chamber endorses international competitiveness ranking and that any activity that goes against the pillars of competitiveness can compromise productivity and prosperity. In a democratic country there exists a healthy competitive market and business climate – Niue is now showing itself to be not that.

A healthy debate and public comment from here and abroad is most welcome as we try and work through this situation.
