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.
