ICT growth bright

Cambodia, Vietnam and Thailand will lead developments in the information communication technology (ICT) sector in the Greater Mekong, according to Korea Intergovernmental Cooperation Centre director general Lee Hyuk, who was speaking after a five-day ICT workshop attended by around 150 delegates from the Greater Mekong sub-region and Korea. Delegates discussed constructing an information superhighway network across the region at the workshop, organised by the Korean Internet & Security Agency with the Ministry of Posts and Telecommunications. Lee said there was much room for growth in the region, with its combined 200 million-plus population and underdeveloped ICT infrastructure. “The possibility of the region’s growth is very and very high. Right now Korea is also working in cooperation with ASEAN, but the GMS is the core of ASEAN, I believe,” he said. “I think Cambodia, Vietnam and Thailand will be the leaders in the region, while Lao and Myanmar will follow.
