As well as hosting its own events, the CTO supports events by other organisations where there is a synergy with the CTO’s vision and priority areas. The CTO participates in such events with partner organisations to spread key messages in the field of ICT4D, and to create a larger ICT4D community in which skills, knowledge and experiences can be shared. Linking with our partners’ platforms helps communicate, educate and motivate to an even wider audience. Supported events provide the CTO with an opportunity to share its expertise in specific areas at events convened by other organisations. This is done in a collaborative spirit, in order to influence and inform policy and advise decision-makers, so as to achieve greater socio-economic development across the Commonwealth in the field of ICTs.

We warmly welcome the opportunity to discuss any potential opportunities for partnering in delivering high-quality events and conferences. Please contact Lasantha De Alwis (Director and Head of the Operations Department/Corporate Secretary) at to discuss opportunities.
