The vision and key objective of the government is to enhance the ICT literacy rate to 75% by the year 2016 through the meaningful development of this vital segment in Sri Lanka, says Telecommunications and Information Technology Minister, Ranjith Siyambalapitiya.

"IT-related exhibitions of the caliber of INFOTEL have played a pivotal role in widening the horizon of knowledge in the industry and giving an impetus to our sustained effort to achieve the goal of a significantly high ICT literacy ratio in the country", the Minister noted.

He was speaking as the chief guest at the inauguration of INFOTEL –2014, South Asia’s biggest Information and Technology Exhibition organized by the Federation of Information and Technology Industry Sri Lanka (FITIS), recently at the Bandaranaike Memorial International Conference Hall (BMICH) in Colombo.

The ICT Agency of Sri Lanka (ICTA) hosted the e-Swabhimani Award Gala 2014 recently (5) at the Cinnamon Grand Hotel, Colombo.  It was held under the patronage of Telecommunication and Information Technology Minister Ranjith Siyambalapitiya and ICTA Chairman, Senior Presidential Advisor and Peradeniya University Chancellor Prof. P. W. Epasinghe.

Addressing the audience at the award ceremony, Telecommunication and Information Technology Minister Ranjith Ranjith Siyambalapitiya said: “New creations should be developed. But it is very important that we appreciate the developers.   ICTA has taken steps to select the developers  in a transparent manner from a large number of competitors  and grant them awards. The ICT literacy  that was about 4 per cent about a decade ago has now exceeded the 50 per cent mark. Recognition has much to do with improvement. This is so with the increase in the ICT literacy rate as well as in other great strides Sri Lanka has made in ICT both in Sri Lanka and in the international community”.

The ICT Agency of Sri Lanka (ICTA) and the Employees’ Trust Fund Board (ETFB) joined hands recently (31) in launching a facility  for more ICT benefits for the people.
