Date : Jan-11-2005
"Promoting the economic growth of developing countries and accelerating
regional economic integration"
The working-level study visit course for the Myanmar ICT Development
Master Plan Project is conducted at KISDI (President John. H. Lee) from
Jan. 9 to Feb. 5.
The course began on Jun. 11 with the welcoming address of KISDI
President Lee in participation of Dr. Kang In-soo, senior researcher at
KISDI and the seventeen members of e-National Task Force including
public officials of the Myanmar's government.
A working-level course for Myanmar Master Plan Development is conducted
at KISDI for a month.
The Myanmar ICT Development Master Plan Project sponsored by KOICA and
carried out by KISDI is designed to help promote ICT development in
Myanmar by working out the ICT development master plan and detailed
action plans. The Project is aimed to develop the Myanmar's economy and
ultimately establish the Initiative for ASEAN Integration (IAI), thereby
contributing to bridging the development gap among nations and
accelerating regional economic integration. This working-level course
was prepared as a follow-up step for the Program organized last October
for the purpose of enhancing the awareness of Myanmar's high-ranking
policymakers about the ICT Master Plan.
KISDI President Lee is delivering his welcoming address to participants
in the study visit on Myanmar ICT Master Plan Development.
This course will be an opportunity for Myanmar's working-level officials
to learn Korea's know-how in developing ICT policies and the legal
framework. KISDI is planning to provide full support for the course in
order for participants to effectively implement an ICT Master Plan
campaign in Myanmar.
The four-week long course will include: 1) detailed subjects of the
Master Plan including e-government, e-commerce, ICT HRD, IT industry, a
policy for the knowledge-based society, and standardization, 2) ICT
infrastructure, industry, laws and institutions, Application, and 3) a
field trip to ICT industrial facilities.
