Members Commisioning of the e-government Secretariat, formation of the ICT
board and liberization of the ICT sector have all been fantastic
initiatives, however we need to strengthen Public private Sector
collaborations if we are to realise more gain, key areas that we may focus
on are Entrepreneurship training so that we may tap into the benefits of new
technologies before they are obsolete, we must stop experimenting with
technology and do business using technology, this brings in another aspect
POLICY, there is likely to be a paradigm shift in the  way businesses are
run if we are to fully embrace technology as a matter of fact some
businesses might totally disappear as a result of technology whereas new
ones will emerge, the problem is that there are lots of boardroom games that
stand in the way of enactment of some of this policies which must be dealt
with may be we need some online mass action, the future looks bright but it
is important to coordinate all ict4d initiatives whether fronted by
Government, private or public sector
