World Information Society Day 17th May 2007 Public Dialogue & ICT4D Expo PDF Print E-mail

10th May 2007

As one of the commitments of UN General Assembly during the Tunis 2005 WSIS conference, May 17 was designated as WSIS Day by the UN. It is a day for countries to take stock of their achievements of WSIS 2005 Action Lines. Uganda is set to commemorate this day with the theme: “Achieving MDGs, the contribution of ICTs; Public- Private Partnerships between the Civil Society and Government” and a range of activities including an ICT4D Expo and a public Dialogue.

 

The Ministry of ICT, UNDP and UCC have partnered with I-Network-Uganda, the Commonwealth Peoples’ Association of Uganda (CPA), LIIDA and FRK Communications to organize activities to mark this day.

 

The public dialogue and exhibition will be an opportunity to showcase to the public Uganda’s achievements since WSIS 2005 and for players in the ICT arena to meet and network as they review their Action Lines as part of the awareness campaign in Uganda.
