Building Smart Nation

A smart nation is the one where people can be made empowered by technology so they can live meaningful and fulfilled lives through harnessing the power of networks, data and info-comm technologies. A smart nation can not just be built by the Government, but the input has to be from all the citizens, companies, agencies etc.

It’s an African proverb:

It takes a village to raise a child.

If you want a child to grow up and contribute back to the society you need the Teacher, the Police Officer, the Uncle, the Parents to Train and Guide the child to how the village want the child to be. Similarly it takes a ecosystem to build a smart nation.
