Digital Opportunities

22. ICT holds tremendous potential for helping developing countries
accelerate growth, raise standards of living and meet other development
priorities. We endorse the report of the Digital Opportunity Task Force
(dot.force) and its Genoa Plan of Action that successfully fulfilled the
Okinawa mandate. The direct participation of representatives from public,
private and non-profit sectors, as well as that of developing countries'
governments, presents a unique formula for ensuring that digital
technologies meet development needs. We will continue to support the process
and encourage all stakeholders to demonstrate ownership, to mobilise
expertise and resources and to build on this successful co-operation. We
will review the implementation of the Genoa Plan of Action at our next
Summit on the basis of a report by the G8 Presidency. We also encourage
development of an Action Plan on how e-Government can strengthen democracy
and the rule of law by empowering citizens and making the provision of
essential government services more efficient.

Note from moderation: It appears that G8 spent more time/force in Genova for
street force ... than for dot force :-(
