Computer, ICT - powerful tools in development -Minister Siyambalapitiya

"Computer, information and communication technology are powerful weapons in the country's development," said Telecommunication and Information Technology Minister Ranjith Siyambalapitiya.

He was the keynote speaker at opening of the 605th Nenasala at the Udowita Undugoda Sri Bimbarama temple in Mabopitiya in Kegalle, under President Mahinda Rajapaksa's concept of setting up 1000 Nenasalas islandwide.

"ICT literacy in this country has reached 30 percent.

Our aim is to increase it to 75 percent by 2016. Nenasalas will provide valuable support in this regard. The computer is there to work on and not to be left in a box or concealed under a cloth".

ICTA Chief Executive Officer Reshan Dewapura said, "Nenasalas play a major role in providing the knowledge of Information and Communication Technology to the people in the village.

The project has gained plaudits internationally also because of its efficiency.

People can enjoy many services and facilities and have access to vast knowledge because of ICT.

Our objective is to further extend these benefits".

Chief Incumbent of the Sri Bimbarama Ven. Hikgoda Anuruddha Thera and ICTA Senior Program Head Athula Pushpakumara also participated.
