Citizen Empowerment

The Government of Sri Lanka (GoSL) recognized the critical role that ICT can play in fostering social integration, peace, growth, and poverty reduction. The Government intends to use ICT to improve the reach and responsiveness of public services, reduce transaction costs to business, make government more transparent and accountable, and address the urgent needs of poor communities and isolated regions.

Therefore, Citizen empowerment is to empower the Citizens by taking the Digital Technologies and infrastructure to the Citizens and create an ecosystem for better delivery and consumption of the Government and educational services for an overall economic development of the country and better living of the Citizens.

(iii) create an enabling environment for the knowledge economy;

(iv) develop specialized ICT skills and broad ICT literacy at all levels of education; (v) deliver faster, more efficient, and more transparent government services to all citizens and businesses;

(vi) use ICT as a lever for social development; and

(vii) create jobs through a dynamic and competitive ICT sector and through diffusion of ICT across the nation.
