Sri Lanka Telecom PLC on Tuesday launched the National Digital Roadmap at the Nelum Pokuna Theatre in the presence of President Maithripala Sirisena who was the chief on the occasion.

The ceremony consisted of three sessions - Digital Youth Forum, Digital Citizen Forum and the launch of National Digital Roadmap.

SLT National Digital Roadmap is a large scale ICT infrastructure development project which is planned to be implemented under the pillars of Smart Security, Smart Government, Smart Health, Smart Building, Smart Utilities, Smart Environment, Smart Transportation and Mobility, Smart Agriculture, Smart Money, Smart Education, Smart Workforce and Smart Infrastructure.

A large number of projects would be initiated under each sector with a wider focus on empowering not only the government’s Smart initiatives and the industrial landscape, but also transforming the lives of the people by providing them with cutting-edge digital solutions.

Sri Lanka Telecom PLC took the lead in planning these initiatives with the support of the Group’s mobile arm Mobitel (Pvt) Limited, Peo TV and other subsidiaries, the company said in a press release.

The overall vision of the National Digital Roadmap has been established, based on the broad principle ‘Limitless You’. Many technological opportunities, including the access to the Internet, mobile technologies and smart solutions remained largely unrelated to the daily lives of the people for years but the SLT Group successfully managed to mitigate this ‘digital gap’ by expanding ICT solutions and infrastructure even to the far corners of the island facilitating lives of the nation.

The group has also taken measures to raise public awareness on these technologies to better achieve the objective of making digital experience a part of the daily lives of Sri Lankans.
