The workshop was jointly organized with the Asian Development Bank (ADB) and the Technical Cooperation Directorate (TCD) of Singapore's Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA). The participants were government officials and policymakers from seventeen developing member countries of the ADB. The workshop, organized under the overall design and management of Dr. Ramesh B. Adhikari, Senior Capacity Building Specialist, ADB Institute, featured prominent resource speakers from academia, government agencies, multilateral institutions and the private sector. The workshop aimed to strengthen the participants' understanding of the various issues involved in harnessing and utilizing emerging ICT to promote economic and social development in the Asia and Pacific region.
