Symposium Details

About

International studies that correlate the growth of Internet usage to enhanced productivity and increased national competitiveness are all based on the groundwork that there are appropriate applications and content relevant to the socio economic environment within a country.
Internet is now measured as an optimum medium of local content delivery, providing opportunities for people to interact with each other, expressing ideas, knowledge and culture in their own languages.
Asia Internet Symposium (AIS) Kathmandu will draw from its proceedings to examine how local content in a developing country (Nepal) is created, exchanged and adapted. The event will discuss challenges linked with local content development in a country with 123 languages spoken as mother tongue.
Answers to the following ‘How To’ will be explored to determine the present and future prospects of local content market inside Nepal and similar economies:
  • Invest resources in a wide spectrum of local initiatives that create and transport local content?
  • Work with existing content market, host platforms and intermediaries to exchange and deliver community-oriented content?
  • Provide incentives for local content?
  • Strengthen the ‘collaboration’ capacities of organisations working with both ‘global’ and ‘local’ content development.
