Policy Statement: Dr. Salma Abbasi, Chairperson and CEO, eWorldwide Group at the ITU, WSIS 2017
Some highlights from Dr Salma’s policy statement at the WSIS 2017;
- The eWorldwide Group have been closely working with the WSIS for the past 10 years supporting governments and civil societies working toward becoming a truly inclusive knowledge economy and digital society, along with supporting them to achieve the MDGs and sustainable development.
- We have seen tremendous value and progress during the WSIS forum, as it provides a unique platform for sharing best practices and being part of a global community with a shared vision of believing in the potential of ICTs.
- As this journey comes to an end, it is critical that we learn from our mistakes reflecting on the challenges we have overcome and the successes we have achieved.
- The WSIS forum needs to evolve to the next level, allowing space for more inter-ministerial and interdisciplinary round table discussions with all key stakeholders and multi-sector partners who all play a critical role in achieving the new SDGs, especially the youth.
