The National IT/BPM Chamber, Sri Lanka Association for Software and Services Companies (SLASSCOM), in an effort to promote inclusive growth and reconciliation, will stage the Jaffna IT Week from 3-6 December at a number of venues across the region.

The Jaffna IT Week will comprise the Future Careers Program on 3 and 4 December at the Vembadi Girls’ High School, an IT/BPM Export Forum staged at the Tilko City Hotel on 5 December and the Jaffna IT Conference, which will be held at the Kailasapathy Auditorium of the University of Jaffna on 6 December.

Partnering SLASSCOM in this initiative are the Export Development Board (EDB), the Information and Communications Technology Agency of Sri Lanka (ICTA), the Ministry of Education, the University of Jaffna and the Yarl IT Hub.

The event’s organisers seek to use it as a vehicle to transport the IT/BPM sector to the north of the country.

Motivating the ICT industry  workforce is an important endeavour that has to be continuously focused on, says ICT Agency of Sri Lanka (ICTA) CEO Reshan Dewapura.

Dewapura said so while participating at the National Best Quality Software Awards (NBQSA) 2014 held in Colombo recently (17).

“As a country that is looking to its ICT Industry to be a catalyst for economic growth, one of the key things to focus is the growth and development of our human capital or human resources in this sector. Attracting new skills to the industry, and keeping the existing industry workforce motivated and inspired to deliver top quality products and services is an on-going challenge, and an important endeavour that we have to continuously focus on”, Dewapura said.

The following are excerpts from the speech the ICTA CEO delivered at the  NBQSA 2014:

Sri Lanka was selected as a vice chair of  the UNESCAP (United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific) Information and Communication Technology Committee last week. 

The  bearer of this great honour for Sri Lanka is the  ICT Agency of Sri Lanka (ICTA) CEO Reshan Dewapura. Dewapura was unanimously selected by ESCAP as one of the two vice chairs of  its ICT Committee.

Dewapura’s  selection  for the next two years occurred at the United Nations Conference Centre (UNCC) in Bangkok. The unanimous election  is significant in view of the aspiration for the position by several high-calibre countries.

Speaking about  the appointment, ICTA CEO said that being called up to serve in the committee  was not an honour bestowed him personally but on the country. 

Commenting on the election for the prestigious post ICTA Chairman Professor P. W. Epasinge said: ”This UNESCAP ICT committee to which ICTA CEO  has been  elected as Vice Chair  is the same committee that was chaired  two terms by Presidential Secretary  Lalith Weeratunga.. This says much about the importance of this post.  The selection is a corroboration of the  noteworthy strides Sri Lanka has made in ICT. It is a tribute to  the country in terms of ICT  development, among all member countries as well as the observers like EU”.
