The Authority for Info-communications Technology Industry of Brunei Darussalam (AITI) released its five-year strategic plan yesterday during the Mid-Year Conference and Exhibition (MYCE) 2021 that laid out its mission, strategic goals and strategic objectives for 2020 to 2025.
The plan was developed to support outcomes in the Digital Economy Masterplan 2025 and is aligned closely with the Ministry of Transport and Infocommunications (MTIC) 2025 strategic objectives that are related to the development of the info-communications sector, said AITI in a statement.
The plan highlighted three strategic outcomes: a thriving digital industry, a connected nation and a digitally enriched society.
The outcomes “are underpinned by strategic pillars, which aims at facilitating digital industry development, enabling conducive regulatory environment and digital infrastructure, and empowering businesses and society with digital capacity”, said AITI.
The organisation said that the aspiration of the strategic plan is to also reshape AITI’s approach in reaching out to people by partnering with key players in the industry and the community to ensure the right set of programmes are identified and implemented.
“As the digital sector continues to evolve, overarching strategic direction set in the AITI Strategic Plan shall allow room for changes in line with the rapidly changing environment,” said AITI.
Regular measurements towards strategic targets and their achievements are key to the successful execution of the strategies as well as to allow review of strategies and approaches in order to keep in with the advancement of technology.
