ISOC @ eNortheast 2010
Rajnesh Singh, Regional Bureau Manager for Asia, was invited to keynote at eNortheast 2010, held in Guwahati, Northeast India. The region suffers from a lack of infrastructure and the Indian Government has been allocating significant resources to develop the region.
The eNortheast 2010 conference was established to provide a multi-stakeholder forum to discuss issues affecting the region and to explore ways forward. Singh’s presentation focused on open Internet policies and how that can contribute to economic development. He also moderated a panel session on “Governance & Public Service Delivery: Effective Deployment of ICT and Internet Technology”.
The event was well organised, and provided some interesting perspectives on projects in areas with poor infrastructure and associated issues. More information on the event is available here.
