Sri Lanka’s ICTA commences programme to create awareness on digital tech
Sri Lanka’s Information and Communication Technology Agency (ICTA) is engaged in a programme to create awareness on digital technology in all parts of the island.
Accordingly, the ICTA is to conduct a two-day virtual forum in collaboration with Sri Lanka’s Ministry of Technology, Telecommunication Regulatory Commission (TRCSL) telecommunications partners and industry partners on 21 and 22 August.
The forum anticipates bringing together key stakeholders in the region on to one discussion platform. The representatives from government agencies, telecommunications and technology industry officials, Small Medium Enterprises (SMEs) and start-up community, Southern Province Chamber of Commerce and education industry officials are also expected to be a part of the discussion forum, the Daily FT has stated.
This Southern Province forum is the second of the five regional cluster development programmes planned in the Western Province, Southern Province, Eastern Province, Central Province, and Northern Province.
Topics such as the Vision for Digital Sri Lanka, the ICTA strategy in driving digital transformation, digital economy and the role of the Southern cluster, and the way forward in driving digital transformation are among the many other topics planned for discussion.
Sri Lanka’s ongoing development programme as well as economic expansion has opened up many new business/investment opportunities in the country’s ICT and digital infrastructure development sectors. With the government of Sri Lanka committed to converting the country into an e-economy, the ICT and digital infrastructure development sectors pose attractive business/investment opportunities. With Sri Lanka growing as an emerging business destination in the South Asian region, the country poses many opportunities to foreign businesses/investors.
