KENYA : NATIONAL ICT POLICY

 

The Kenyan Government recognizes the role of ICT in the social and economic development of the nation and has promulgated a national ICT Policy based on the Economic Recovery Strategy for Wealth and Employment Creation (2003-2007). In the National Information & Communications Technology (ICT) Policy released in January 2006, the Government's vision is to make Kenya ĎA prosperous ICT-driven society'.

Its mission is to improve the livelihoods of Kenyans by ensuring the availability of accessible, efficient, reliable and affordable ICT services. The policy is readily available at the Ministry of Information's website at www.information.go.ke.
