      e-Sri Lanka: Transforming Government and Society with ICT

      When: May 28, 2009, 10:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. ET (GMT - 4 hours)

      World Bank invites you to this seminar to discuss lessons learned from
      implementing an integrated e-government and e-development program in Sri
      Lanka and setting up a dedicated government agency to support this agenda.
      The E-Sri Lanka initiative, which became effective in January 2005 is one
      of the pioneering ICT for Development projects supported by the World
      Bank. This ambitious e-development project aims to bring connectivity to
      rural populations, improve the way government operates and raise awareness
      of the benefits of ICT for remote rural populations as well as support the
      development of a vibrant private ICT sector. The leadership team from Sri
      Lanka's ICT Agency will present (i) the original E-Sri Lanka vision and
      (ii) emerging lessons and key results after the first four years of
      implementation experience. To learn more about e-Sri Lanka program visit:
