President Mahinda Rajapaksa says that when using technology, it is essential to ensure privacy of the citizen, safeguard children from its harmful effects and ensure that its possibilities to harm social progress are contained.

The President made this observation while issuing a special message in view of the twentieth anniversary of the launch of internet.

In his release, the President says that Sri Lanka has fully accepted the advances of the Internet and is dedicated to ensuring its widest reach in the country to benefit all sections of society.

The release adds that the government’s moves to expand internet connectivity with the rapid availability of broad-band throughout the country is a fine example for the above.

The President points out that the Nena Sala Programme with 750 country-wide outlets today, is an ICT based e-Sri Lanka development activity taking modern connectivity to the rural sector.
