Minister of Information Technology and Communication (ICT) Tassarajen Pillay Chedumbrum, inaugurated a new company, SILBOTS, in Gaborone, Botswana on Wednesday. The event was attended by Botswana minister of Transport and Communications Frank J Ramsden.
Chedumbrum said, “After having structured the industry of information technology and communication into the fifth pillar of the Mauritian economy, our government places Mauritius as the regional centre for ICT.”
SIL has already completed several important projects directly in Botswana, including the computerisation of the Registrar of Companies, Accounting, Banking and Bank
Reconciliation System Office of the Accountant General, the Tax Management System and Election Management Information System to the Independent Electoral Commission.
“Botswana offers a territory rich in promises to SIL, because our country is among the top ten in the world in the mining sector. The development of this sector involves the use of complete IT solutions that SIL could provide,” said Ramsden
