 National information resources are not
  systematically organized.
 Information infrastructure targeted towards
  supporting development activities is very
  weak.
        ICT Capacity Building

 Lack   of standards in collection, processing and
  dissemination of information.
 Extremely low penetration level of the national
  telecommunications network.
 A serious shortage of human resources in the
  field, both in number and qualification diversity
         ICT Capacity Building
