The Democratic Republic of Ethiopia, shows its will in exploiting every means and opportunities to fight against poverty and to ensure a sustainable development. There is a need to equip developing countries, particularly Least Developed Countries (LDCs) with the necessary enabling environment, the relevant institutional and management capacity, internationally competitive telecommunications infrastructure and services, pervasive penetration of internet technology, skilled human resources and streamlined ICT applications into development programs. Ethiopia is focusing its attention on rural development where 85% of population lives.

Ethiopia is undertaking a program whose components include, among others, satellite based ICTs application in secondary education across the country, interconnection of higher education entities and implementing district level connectivity to empower a decentralized development approach. In addition Ethiopia established, in 2003, a national information and Communication Technology Development Authority to guide the exploitation of ICTs industry. Ethiopia is committed to work for the realization of the Summit’s Declaration of Principles and Plan of Action.
