In many countries, information and communication technologies (ICT) are increasingly becoming means of fundamental importance to provide government and business services to citizens. Hence, Mongolia believes that the main purpose of the World Summit on Information Society lies not only in giving added impetus to governments’ efforts, but also in drawing the attention of the international community to the widening digital divide among regions and countries, and in supporting developing countries, particularly their civil society and private sector, in using ICT as an engine of growth and development.
