Responding to the Global Financial Crisis PDF Print E-mail

Is this the opportunity the ICT sector has been looking for? A number of things seem to be lining up that could help push the use of technology further in Uganda. the first one is the global economic crisis, which has slowed trade, business and transactions everywhere including Uganda. Employees have been laid off and companies restructured to ensure that compaines survive the downturn. We believe this is the time for the local ICT sector to showcase how the application and use of technology can help companies survive the downturn.

Secondly is the arrival of more bandwidth to the East Africna coast. The availability of more bandwith should provide cheaper connectivity, which hopefully will draw more people to consume internet services. This provides another opportunity for the ICT sector to provide internet based services and help other connect to the internet.
