Sri Lanka today is among the most widely connected countries and societies in the Asian region. It is emerging as the telecom hub of the South Asian region, President Mahinda Rajapaksa said yesterday.
Addressing the eighth annual Forum and the 50th Council Meeting of the Commonwealth Telecommunications Organization (CTO) in Colombo, President Rajapaksa told the gathering, including representatives from more than 50 member nations, that this was a significant achievement for a country which recently emerged from nearly three decades of destructive terrorism.
The President also said the improvement of telecommunications and computer literacy will contribute towards realizing the vision of being a tri-lingual nation by 2020.
