IOC: ICT Support Programme

The EU has contributed 21 million Euro to finance the Regional ICT Support Programme which is implemented by COMESA and covers the region of Eastern and Southern Africa. The IOC is implementing a section of the programme worth 2 million Euro.  The objective of the ICT Support Programme is to bridge the digital divide by removing barriers to the efficient utilisation of information and communication technologies, which means, amongst other things, tackling unfavourable regulatory regimes, inadequate communications infrastructure, information access bottlenecks and skills shortages. Project activities include studies for the SEGANET cable (the IOC countries signed a Memorandum of Understanding in December 2008) and the development of Internet portals for small island states and regional trade through. The programme will continue until June 2009.
