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”.
