World Telecommunication and Information Society Day Symposium

If you have Thursday morning free, check out the World Telecommunication and Information Society Day Symposium:

The Ministry of Information and Communications Technology in collaboration with the Uganda Communications Commission and the Civil Society Organisations invites the public to a half day symposium under the theme “Achieving MDGs, the contribution of ICTs; Public-Private Partnerships and between the Civil Society and Government” at Hotel Africana on Thursday, May 17, 2007 starting at 9:00 AM.

The symposium will focus on educating the public about telecommunications in Uganda, identifying solutions to the challenges facing Uganda’s telecommunications, and (this is where I get excited) promoting awareness of ICTs as tools for economic and social development.

For more information, contact the Uganda Communications Commission, 12th floor Communications House, 0312339000 or 0414339000, ucc@ucc.co.ug.
