Genève 2003 - Tunis 2005

Sweden starts its speech with the example of Afghanistan’ s women who were able to sell carpets using the internet, as they are carpet weavers in Afghanistan. These women are an unusual example of how ICTs can benefit to the poor. In Sweden, the use of ICTs is seen as the main dynamic force of economy. For many years Sweden has been at the forefront of ICTs development. Besides the clear link between ICTs and economic development, Sweden believes also that ICTs contribute to gender equality and that they are a tool for a faster integration of women into society. In this regard, Sweden supports the Gender Caucus for the Nordic, initiative focusing on Gender and ICTs. As a strategy to fight the digital divide, Sweden also supports the program “Global eSchools and Communities Initiative.

The international cooperation is vital , but it is also important to point out that each country must also take the responsibility itself to secure its own development.
