ICT Manpower Development

Banner of ICT Manpower Development

Information and communications technology (ICT) plays an important role in fuelling social and economic developments. It has become a major driving force for the globally competitive economy, underpinning innovation, competiveness and long-term prosperity. It is also taking shape as an economic sector in its own right. There are around 112 000 ICT professionals engaged in various business sectors; around 34% of them are involved in software design and development; and around 38% of them are providing infrastructure and operations support.

The OGCIO continues to foster closer academia-industry collaboration to work together to create an environment where a well qualified ICT manpower can flourish and meet the needs of a digital economy. We also encourage students to take up ICT programmes in their tertiary studies or even in secondary schools, and to become ICT professionals in their careers.
