Liberalisation in the Caribbean: One of our Directors, Harm Aben, is currently assisting the incumbent operator in the Bahamas, BTC, in its preparations for full market liberalisation.

To date, he has been involved in the development of a reference offer for access and interconnection services (RAIO) including the development of cost-based tariffs, a review of competition guidelines issued by the regulator URCA, the development of an offer for wholesale broadband services and various tailored workshops with senior management on a variety of regulatory and commercial issues.

Through this comprehensive program Incyte is further strengthening its knowledge and understanding of telecommunications markets in the Caribbean at various stages of the liberalisation cycle.

Digicel Haiti Relief Fund: Incyte Consulting has recently worked with Digicel in Suriname on matters of regulatory costing. We were pleased to donate 5% of its project fees to the Digicel Haiti Relief Fund which is helping to re-build that country's infrastructure following this year's devastating earthquake. Incyte is committed to the economic development of the Caribbean, and we hope this example is followed by other firms with interests in the region.

Regulatory capacity building and market analysis in Moldova: David Rogerson and Jim Holmes are working with our associates GVIC for the European Bank of Reconstruction and Development to assist in the capacity building of ANRCETI, the telecoms regulator for Moldova.

This is an extended assignment - so far our work has concentrated on market definition and analysis to determine appropriate ex ante regulatory responses to the risks associated with power in specific markets, and additional specific interconnection issues. Incyte is reinforcing its strengths in market definition and analysis in the course of this and other projects now under way.

The National Regulatory Agency for Electronic Communications and Information Technology was one of the first regulatory telecommunications authorities in the post-Soviet space. For more information on Moldova's regulator, refer to the ANRCETI website.

Expert assistance and support to the Regulator in Samoa: The recent history of call termination pricing regulation in Samoa has been very eventful with significant challenge and contention. Jim Holmes and Matt OíRourke have provided expert assistance to the Regulator in the course of his work to finalise on-going orders for fixed and mobile call termination rates.

Incyte's work involves the review of cost models and benchmarking studies prepared for the Regulator and comments from the stakeholders. The work is all the more noteworthy because many regulators and operators in the Pacific have looked to interconnection rates and outcomes in Samoa as important indicators for their own countries.

Reviewing interconnection and access in the Pacific: The EC has recently made available funding for development programmes to Pacific island states delivered via the ITU.

Jim Holmes has been retained within that programme to review the state of play of interconnection and access regimes within the Pacific and to recommend useful ways forward for the adoption of better practice, with an eye to harmonisation where that is appropriate. The study covers the 14 independent island countries of the Pacific ranging in population from 1,400 in Niue to 6,500,000 in Papua New Guinea. Only half of these countries have a competitive service delivery model.

The study will look very much at the broader lessons that can benefit all of the participating countries even if some are unlikely to be able to sustain a competitive market anytime soon. Through this and other projects Incyte has built its own expertise as Pacific-specialists with in-depth understanding of the issues that arise in this region..
