Strategy and Policy Making
ICTs have a valuable potential to help meet good governance as they can create a link between the government institutions and the public. Citizen feedback is must for improving the Government services. ICTs support in keeping the citizens informed, providing them with details of Government activities.

Innovative Use of Assistive Technologies
Assistive technology (AT) is a generic term that includes assistive, adaptive, and rehabilitative devices for people with disabilities, special needs and includes the process used in selecting, locating, and using them. An ever increasing number of enlightened, citizen-focused governments across the globe are embracing AT not only as a matter of law, but also as top national priorities to harness the “intellectual powers” of all their citizens and building a “competition-ready”, productive, enabled citizenry.
AT is not only a matter of altruistic humanitarian values for societies wanting to enable, integrate their entire populations in healthy, productive societies, but also a paramount imperative that enables global competition, presence in a “integrated” technology world!
