It is with great pleasure and excitement that I stand before you today to inaugurate the new office of the Internet Society Sri Lanka Chapter. This momentous occasion marks a significant milestone in our journey towards advancing the Internet and its positive impact on society in Sri Lanka.
I would like to extend my heartfelt gratitude to all the Exco and Members who have contributed to making this day possible. Your unwavering support and commitment to the cause of an open, accessible, and secure Internet have brought us to this moment of celebration.
The Internet has become an integral part of our daily lives, transforming the way we communicate, conduct business, access information, and connect with the world. As the President of the Internet Society, it is my firm belief that the Internet should be a tool for empowerment, fostering innovation, education, and inclusive development.
The Sri Lanka Chapter of the Internet Society has been at the forefront of advocating for an open and inclusive Internet ecosystem. Through various initiatives, programs, and collaborations, the Chapter has played a vital role in promoting digital literacy, fostering Internet governance discussions, and advocating for policies that support an open and secure Internet in Sri Lanka.
The new office we inaugurate today symbolizes our commitment to furthering these efforts. It will serve as a hub for our members, partners, and stakeholders to come together, collaborate, and work towards our shared vision of a connected Sri Lanka. It will be a space where ideas are nurtured, innovative projects, and meaningful dialogue takes place.
In line with our commitment to digital inclusivity, the office will also serve as a center for digital skills training, providing opportunities for individuals from all walks of life to enhance their knowledge and skills in navigating the digital landscape. By equipping people with the necessary tools and resources, we empower them to fully participate in the digital economy and contribute to the socio-economic development of Sri Lanka.
In closing, let us embrace this new chapter with enthusiasm and determination. Let us continue our efforts to build a vibrant digital future, where the Internet serves as a force for positive change, fostering economic growth, social inclusion, and knowledge sharing.
Thank you, and let us now embark on this exciting journey together!
