List of Speakers in the General Debate

The Democratic Republic of Congo sees the World Summit as a mean to give the right to information and knowledge to all people. It believes that ICTs stimulate the economic, social, cultural and political development and that they could be a tool to improve the quality of life and to reduce poverty, hunger and social exclusion. The government established a program in conformity with the goals defined in the Declaration of Principles and the Action Plan. The program is called “The New Hope” and, with it, the Democratic Republic of Congo intends to build a telecommunication infrastructure adapted to ICTs that will cover the whole national territory; to assure the access to Internet among all social classes through communitarian centers; to establish new partnerships through technologies; to reinforce the structural and institutional capacities; to organize campaigns in order to elucidate the advantages of using ICTs; to reduce the prohibitive costs of informatics and telecommunication products.

The Republic of Congo appeals to international cooperation. It also suggests the creation of a legal mechanisms to protect the private information and communications.
