IT, an investment in Info infrastructure DOST

By Rose B. Palacio

Davao City (30 July) -- Modern technology is an investment in the formation of communication and technology, said Department of Science and Technology (DOST) regional head, Ed Tesorero.

Modern technology, he said is predicted to increase especially with the business sector and President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo's focus on creating knowledge-based economy.

"The Administration is providing an all out support for the full development of the IT industry in the country and once we have fully developed IT, our country will not be dependent on imports from abroad and likewise can develop our own industries, develop our own expertise in softwares", he said.

"While our country is into software exports, the participation is only limited to assembling and not on design and application and the government feels that we should look into other possibilities", he added.

He cited the wealth of expertise in Mindanao considering the many academic institutions involved in advanced electronic works.

"We are also looking on software development as an effective medium in improving the region's economy," he further said. (PIA) [top]
