The internet is the most critical piece of infrastructure we rely on today. Electricity, water, transportation, or anything else you’re thinking of is online in one way or another, and it must be working optimally at all times. With the world rapidly changing towards a virtual future, FITIS is hosting Sri Lanka Internet Day to spark conversations to formulate strategies for filling the gaps to unlock the internet’s full potential.
Organised by the Digital Chapter of FITIS, the inaugural Sri Lanka Internet Day will be held virtually on the 6th and 7th of April. Under the theme of ‘Digital Inclusion’ it aims to showcase citizen engagement in a digital society and its positive impacts. It will also highlight national priorities towards enhancing Sri Lanka’s digital infrastructure to facilitate a digital ecosystem.
The event has a line-up of some of the most influential and prominent individuals, and will showcase Sri Lanka’s digital strategy and digitalisation initiatives undertaken by the public and private sectors. From the public sector, initiatives around digital IDs, Digital Payment adoption, and PPPs will be spotlighted at Sri Lanka Internet Day. Meanwhile, initiatives from the private sector around Fintech, AgriTech, digital products for SMEs, and digital adoption by conglomerates will be highlighted.
Conversations around these initiatives will be falling under the topics of Digital Policies & Regulations, Digital Pillars, Digital Strategies, Technology & Data, and Industries, Sectors & Business Segments. With over 100 personalities set to take the virtual stage for in-depth conversations, Sri Lanka Internet Day will feature over 100 key influencers from the IT industry sharing their knowledge and experience in key areas.
The event is free and open to everyone. You can register and be a part of the 1st ever Sri Lanka Internet Day by clicking here.
