Technology Making a Difference in Colombia

Plans for Expanded Opportunities

Intel Corporation Chairman Craig Barrett today praised Medellín for leadership in harnessing the benefits of technology and said its Digital Medellín strategy was a model that should be replicated to better people's lives across the country.

Colombia this week on the final leg of a worldwide tour focused on increasing the use of technology to expand opportunities in developing countries. During a speech today to young entrepreneurs and other members of Medellín's business community, he cited the ongoing need to foster innovation and technology investment by the public and private sectors. Barrett also placed special emphasis on education, noting that it is vital for Colombia to cultivate a skilled workforce.

"Providing students with access to computers, trained teachers, local content and the world's information resources will help advance Colombia's social and economic development, " said Barrett, who also chairs the United Nations Global Alliance for Information and Communications Technology (ICT) and Development. "Laying this crucial groundwork now will enable Colombia to participate more actively in the global economy."
