Sommet mondial sur la société de l'information
World summit on the information society
Genève 2003 - Tunis 2005

The Republic of South Africa begins its contribution with a reference to a very distinguished member of South African civil society delegation, Ms. Clara Basenjeng Masinga. She personifies an example that the use of ICTs can result in a constructive possibility of change. South Africa considers that the biggest challenges of our times are poverty and underdevelopment. Technologies can be used to reduce inequalities. Therefore it is necessary to bring every kind of technologies where there is no access. The construction of an information society implies a pro-active attitude characterized by planning, developing policies, measures and strategies with clear time lines; ensuring the development and deployment of technologies; creating not only special laws but also incorporating measures to protect children from harmful uses of ICTs, reforming institutions such as post offices and libraries.

South Africa pays a special tribute to the women and men that have made the advances in technology and to the private sector that, through its investment in research and development, has contributed to developing the information society. Media equally play an instrumental and effective role in building an inclusive information society.
