South Sudan is moving ahead to build its information and communications infrastructure, according to the country's Minister of Telecommunications and Postal Services.

When the new nation became independent from Sudan in July 201, the minister says it had "no real infrastructure", especially broadband.

Rebecca Joshua Okwaci, is one of the senior government officials attending a conference of the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) in Busan, South Korea.

Paul Conneally caught up with Minister Okwaci to discuss the challenge of broadband connectivity in her country.
