MACEDONIA TO HOST GAID SESSION IN 2011
Macedonia is set to host the annual session of the Global Alliance for Information and Communication Technologies and Development (GAID) in 2011.
Information Society Minister Ivo Ivanovski will hold press conference Friday to brief about the preparations and the benefit from hosting such an event.
GAID, an initiative approved by the United Nations Secretary-General in 2006, was launched after comprehensive worldwide consultations with governments, the private sector, civil society, the technical and Internet communities and academia.
With its multi-stakeholder approach, the Alliance reaffirms the belief that a people-centered and knowledge-based information society is essential for achieving better life for all.
