Cyberpress Forum to discuss ICT projects in gov’t

How are ICT projects in vital government agencies affecting the delivery of basic services to the public? Is the country ready to embrace the promise of e-government?

These are some of the questions that a forum, organized by the CyberPress, will try to answer on April 24, 2007, 10:30 AM, at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Makati City.

The confab, which is being supported by Sun Microsystems Philippines, has “Computerization Programs in the Public Sector” as the theme.

Key executives from ICT companies doing computerization projects with the government, as well as public officials involved in policy formulation have been invited to serve as speakers and panelists in the forum.

They include representatives from the Commission on Information and Communications Technology (CICT), Commission on Elections (Comelec), LTO contractor Stradcom, Research firm XMG Asia-Pacific, and CIO Forum, the national association of government CIOs.

The event is the first of the three forums being organized for this year by CyberPress, or the IT Journalists Association of the Philippines (www.cyberpress.org.ph).
