Country ICT Survey for Sri Lanka

Alan Greenberg
Background and Objectives: Sida supports a variety of cooperative development projects in Sri Lanka, among them a project supporting ICT infrastructure development and human resources development within Sri Lankan universities. These activities are currently being extended to include assistance in the development of a national ICT policy and strategy framework. As background for future Sida ICT efforts in Sri Lanka, and as a contribution towards the national ICT policy, Sida has commissioned this country survey of ICT. The intent of this report is to provide an analysis focusing on strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and challenges, plus suggested paths to follow as Sri Lanka applies Information and Communications Technologies to the service of national development.
