World Summit on Information Society -TUNIS - 2005
  • Following its Montreux Summit on the  Digital
    Divide  FIAM was involved in the WSIS since 2002
    and contributed in all the preparatory process of
    the Phase 1, leading to the Geneva Summit in
    December 2003 .
  • FIAM wishes to participate in the second phase
    with the input of SMEs from its network.
  • Our goal is to develop Projects dedicated to the
    progress of Multimedia technologies serving
    quality content development purposes in emerging
    countries.

9
World Summit on Information Society -TUNIS - 2005
  • FIAM is willing to put its network to
    contribution and partner with United Nations
    organisations such as ITU, the World Bank, UNDP,
    UNESCO, on specific matters pertaining to content
    development.
  • These projects can also help create new
    associations that can intervene with local
    governments and other public bodies, providing
    infrastructure to the sector and helping with
    content development and financing policies.

10
Why Small and Middle Sized Enterprises (SME)?
  • Because of their capacity to innovate. Creativity
    comes from individuals, using their own cultural
    background, their knowledge and their skills.
  • Local content creation does not come from
    multinational companies whose object is to sell
    intellectual property developed elsewhere, and to
    implement and adapt their own solutions.

11
Why Small and Middle Sized Enterprises? (contd)
  • Small enterprises are easier to manage, faster
    and more efficient in decision making, and can
    more easily adapt to different cultures and
    traditions.
  • Expertise can be directed to other regions or
    countries in need for similar demands.
  • Diaspora companies are often a good way to
    partner with foreign companies.

12
Advantages of networking with SMEs
  • Development of partnerships between enterprises
    who have the same size and same overall
    interests. No fear of being swallowed.
  • Establishment of new markets.
  • Straightforward technological transfer.
  • Create new local businesses and enterprises, and
    new jobs in the knowledge economy.

13
Advantages of networking with SMEs
  • Bring training for the human resources.
  • Help developing the local industry, thus driving
    the economy and bringing wealth into the country
    .
  • Create intellectual property through original and
    diverse local content inside the country, meaning
    that you generate an asset instead of an expense.
  • And promote cultural and linguistic diversity

14
Partnerships
We can imagine all types of partnerships with
municipalities, colleges, universities,
governmental departments and ministries,
specialized schools, media broadcasters, NGOs,
large companies, international organisations,
independent workers, farmers, doctors, non profit
organisations, editors, filmmakers, telephone and
satellite operators, etcThe only thing it takes
is a problem looking for a solution!
15
Conclusion My message here today is very simple
FIAM has a network of SMEs distributed across
the World that can be of significant value to
help bridging this digital divide. You are most
welcome to join in!
