This year, we are celebrating 90th anniversary of ICT sector of Mongolia. In this regard, from the bottom of my heart I would like to thank all people involved in the development of White paper on ICT of Mongolia – 2011 and congratulate all ICT beneficiaries on this special anniversary.
ICT sector’s specialists and workers are enriching the history of 90th anniversary with the successes and achievements. For the past year, the large-scale initiatives such as “The launching of National satellite of Mongolia” project, “Postal services to every household” and “Broadband” national programs were submitted to and approved by the Government of Mongolia.
Furthermore, to ensure development and implementation of the sectoral policy and development of ICT and e-government, National committee on ICT has been re-established and Council of Chief Information Officers of government organizations, comprised from senior decision makers has been setup.
In near future, there are a number of large scale programs and projects need to be developed and implemented such as “State policy on development of ICT sector of Mongolia by year 2021”, “launch of National Communications Satellite”, establishment of “Mongolian Silicon Valley”, switchover of radio and television broadcasting into digital technology, establishment of broadband network and development of electronic government. These issues will be discussed at the National ICT Forum and will come to unified understanding and I’m quite positive that they will be successfully implemented.
I hope that you can read about the achievements of ICT sector development and its contribution towards the overall development Mongolia from publication.
May the knowledge prosper.
