What is the vision of the Country Gateway?
-- Oleg Petrov (firstname.lastname@example.org), September 07, 2000
The vision of CGs can be divided into three parts: Short-term -- Web-portal on development in a specific country Medium-term -- On-line communities building tool and e-business incubator Long-term -- A catalyst of the New Economy What does this mean?
In short-term CGs are envisioned as information clearing-houses that will accumulate all ? development information about the country in an efficient and comprehensive way. As Gateway gains technological sophistication and publicity it will engage local and professional communities in virtual discussion and best practice sharing. These online communities can later be contracted out to independent Internet startup companies. In the long term, Gateway will catalyze the development of the Internet economy in the country and contribute to reducing the digital divide.
