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