This summit was extended as a personal invitation to me but due to the fact that I am out of the country, I am inviting fellow Filipinos who are also members of the Diplo Community, to support and attend the Cebu ICT 2009 Summit. Below is the Event Rationale & Theme. You may visit the event website for further information on registration.
Event Rationale & Theme [taken from http://www.cebuict2009.com]:
The bold rationale behind Cebu ICT 2009 is a testament to the strength and unity of the ICT stakeholders from across the Philippines -- Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao; especially among the country’s foremost regional growth centers. Global competition has and is indeed uniting the ICT players of the Philippines
The thrusts of Cebu ICT 2009 is the realization that the advancement of one shall eventually lead to the advancement of all – as from this will emanate best practices; encourage “transfer of technology”; but more importantly, it will guarantee the quest for a more cohesive national ICT industry development blueprint.
The overall thrust of the event is aptly expressed in the Cebu ICT 2009 theme of “CEBU: e-MERGING ISLAND OF INNOVATION.”
Software and Hardware Vendors, Resellers, and Manufacturers, Network, Internet, ICT, ITES, and Consultancy Services Providers, the Academe, Government and Non-Government Sectors all form an integral part of the Global ICT Industry. They all contribute to the process of transforming and sustaining Cebu as a hub for Information & Communications Technology. As a dynamic wheel in motion, the hub remains incomplete whenever there is any missing or wrongly aligned component. Cebu ICT 2009 will be the opportune moment for all the stakeholders to get together and find their respective place highlighted in the industry’s on-going development effort. As the central cog of a wheel where the spokes interconnect, applied to the ICT Industry, Cebu is the hub – the place of convergence from one or more directions leading to one or more other directions.
By this same token, Cebu ICT 2009 seeks to define and bring to the fore the height, breadth and depth of the ICT stakeholders’ spokes as the convergence to and from within the Cebu ICT industry. For this reason, Cebu ICT 2009 could hopefully become the biggest among all previous Cebu ICT events as it welcomes Cebu’s achievement as a global ICT player. Moreover, this achievement shall serve as the chief motivation, inspiration, and platform for the province to take on the challenge to fulfill the developmental goal it first set sight on in 2001 – for Cebu to be transformed and officially recognized as a major Global ICT Hub within the immediate future.
