ASDF Statement at WSIS 2017 @ ITU, Geneva, Switzerland
Speech in Detail
Your Excellencies, Honourable Ministers, The Secretary General of UN, The Secretary–General of the ITU, Distinguished delegates, Ladies and Gentleman. In a wider capacity as the Secretary General of The ASDF International, I am highly privileged to address at this event and to have an opportunity to bring ASDF inline to achieve the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
The Association of Scientists, Developers and Faculties (ASDF) is doing a massive job in creating a strong community of knowledge growth by providing the International platform for various Professional associations between Countries across the world. With a strong network of associates in almost 90+ countries, ASDF is growing everyday with seer leadership by enhancing the international cooperation between national and international organizations, universities, research bodies and individuals in all aspects of Research and Development.
Making a place holder with the advanced ICT had been as an important task for The Association of Scientists, Developers and Faculties in the past few years of its inception. The establishment has now grown into the well sustained organization with perfect internationalization is the victory achieved.
In this wide intellectual platform, I would like to extend my invitation to foster the socio-economic growth by all the Governmental Organizations and be as a part of ASDF. As a part of this upcoming strategy ASDF stands committed by making contribution in building the relationship between the equal valued bodies creating the framework and a strong expertise in measuring the progress along the WSIS action lines. The digital economy is a powerful catalyst for innovation, growth and social prosperity. The libraries have shrunk into a 3-kilogram book. It can serve our shared vision to promote more sustainable and inclusive growth focused on well-being and equality of opportunities, where people are empowered with education, skills and values, and enjoy trust and confidence.
The knowledge building is the important task and need for the hour. The cost of use of energy in the end user level is increasing widely creating a new metabolic activity. In the present trend, the information pandemic can be a vital threat, but educating the society about handling the data could be the righteous way.
The concept of virtualisation has now taken the floor and automation is being performed instead of relying on the human mechanisms. Thus, it has leaded to the digitally connected cars, provenance, personalization of the content attributions, constant attention, increased flexibility of learning pattern, premiumisation and polarisation of the opportunity.
These days the individualism is growing worse than cancer which in turn is increases the volatility of their growth scope. This is widening the gap between the haves and have nots. They don’t share or transfer the knowledge. The uncertainty is expanding in all the possible means, and the key answer for this would be allowing the open access or providing the eLearning. The capacity building programs could cost the Governments a lot, but having the open access in the education system and advanced learning could be much better and convincingly cheaper than the conventional programs.
In the outset of providing space for the other speakers, I would like to reiterate that we at The Association of Scientists, Developers and Faculties (ASDF) take this opportunity to thank all the Member States and Stake Holders for their efforts towards finalisation of the Outcome Document to be adopted by this high-level discussion of WSIS 2017 and recommit for future participation from ASDF into this WSIS.
I Thank you, Mr Chairman!
