How can In­for­ma­tion and Com­mu­ni­ca­tions Tech­nolo­gies (ICT) ben­e­fit Myan­mar?

Mizzima Business Weekly - - THE DEBATE -

There is an ICT gap be­tween ur­ban and ru­ral ar­eas. Wai Myo Htut – Pro­gramme Co­or­di­na­tor, Myan­mar ICT

Devel­op­ment As­so­ci­a­tion E-gov­ern­ment means us­ing ICT as a tool for sav­ing time and money in pro­vid­ing ser­vices to the peo­ple. Nweni Soe Yin – Di­rec­tor, E-Gov­ern­ment Depart­ment, Min­istry of Trans­port and Com­mu­ni­ca­tion A few hours af­ter an ap­pli­ca­tion is de­vel­oped, it is stolen. Be­cause of this, the soft­ware de­vel­op­ers aban­don their ca­reer due to weak­nesses in pro­tect­ing in­tel­lec­tual prop­erty rights. Min Tayza Nyunt Tin – Ad­vi­sor, Blue Ocean Op­er­at­ing

Man­age­ment Peo­ple can get a lot of in­for­ma­tion in­stantly these days, but they still need to dis­tin­guish myths from facts. Wai Myo Htut – Pro­gramme Co­or­di­na­tor, Myan­mar ICT

Devel­op­ment As­so­ci­a­tion Cur­rently, we have E-gov­ern­ment at the in­ter-depart­ment and in­ter-min­istry level only. We need to do more to pro­vide E-gov­ern­ment be­tween gov­ern­ment and peo­ple. Nweni Soe Yin – Di­rec­tor, E-Gov­ern­ment Depart­ment,

Min­istry of Trans­port and Com­mu­ni­ca­tion When we talk about e-gov­ern­ment, we need to dis­cuss in­fra­struc­ture also. And an­other mat­ter we have is that e-gov­ern­ment is done by min­istries and busi­ness­men for their vested in­ter­ests only. And we also need to dis­cuss stan­dard­i­s­a­tion in ICT. We see that there are no pre­cise poli­cies on ICT.

Han Zaw – Edi­tor, Info Di­gest Me­dia House If we can ap­ply ICT tech­nol­ogy in of­fice work, we can save time in mov­ing files from one desk to an­other.
