My Department's Barrier Busting Task Force is conducting a series of workshops involving key stakeholders from across the telecoms industry to discuss the need for better working relationships in relation to the Electronic Communications Code.

Ministers and officials engage regularly with the telecoms industry and other key stakeholders on a range of issues. However, it would not be appropriate to have conversations with stakeholders about reforms to the Electronic Communications Code while the responses to the consultation on that issue are being considered.
