The e-Sri Lanka initiative uses Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) to develop the economy of Sri Lanka, reduce poverty and improve the quality of life of the people.
This vision will be realized through six programme strategy which encompasses ICT Policy, Leadership, and Institutional Development Programme, The Information Infrastructure, Re-engineering Government, ICT Human Resource Development, ICT Investment and Private Sector Development, e-Society.
The Government, private sector and other stakeholders in the nation's development share a belief that ICT is the bedrock upon which we can build a society with equitable distribution of opportunity and knowledge. We also believe it is a key determinant of the competitive advantage of nations.
This belief has resulted in a shared vision for an e-Sri Lanka – an initiative that will use Information and Communication Technology to develop the economy of Sri Lanka, reduce poverty and improve the quality of life for her people. The e-Sri Lanka initiative encompasses a five-pronged strategy and sets out a national ICT Roadmap.
