ICT: Policies and Strategies
The strategic use of ICT can facilitate effective and efficient delivery of public services in the key sectors of telecommunications, governance, education, health, and agriculture.
In 2003, ADB published its ICT strategy, Toward E-Development in Asia and the Pacific: A Strategic Approach for Information and Communication Technology. The strategy’s three main goals are to:
- create an enabling environment through policy improvements, public institution strengthening, and relevant infrastructure provision
- build human resources for ICT literacy and professional skills
- develop ICT applications and information content through ADB-supported projects and activities
