Nepal Govt. to implement rural ICT scheme

The Nepal Government is planning to launch a rural information and communications scheme in the country, so that people in the rural and remote areas would be benefited from the latest developments in the field of ICT.

The Ministry of Information and Communications is holding a national workshop to collect suggestions from the stakeholders and experts. The government has realised that ICT is playing an important role in socio-economic development. The government has already adopted a national strategy and policy for the development of ICT. Since Nepal is largely a rural country, there is a need for rural ICT schemes. The government is planning to build the necessary infrastructure, so that the rural ICT scheme would be soon launched in all villages of the country.
