Language (Tamil)

The Conference took note of the compilation of Tamil computing words prepared by Official Languages Commission of Sri Lanka. In order to arrive at world-wide consensus on the primary, secondary and compound words for Tamil computing, the conference recommends to the governments of Sri Lanka, India and Singapore to support a website suitably designed to obtain the options and suggestions on a global basis to finalize computing words in Tamil. Amongst various possible script reforms and refinements, there has been a consensus to adopt separate vowel modifiers for the following vowel-consonants: i) i-short and i-long ii) vowel-consonants with u-short and u-long. The form of the modifier may be decided by an expert group constituted for this purpose.

Technology (to Tamil)

The Conference recommended that urgent attention be given by the technology development organizations and the private sector to the development of key technologies such as Optical Character Recognition (OCR), voice recognition, browsers, search engines and machine translations involving the Tamil Language. A call has been made for a global repository of open source software and technology in above areas. Education

Distance education has emerged as the third stage in the evolution of the educational system following the gurukulam and class-room systems. It increases productivity in education and meets the challenges posed by the needs for universal education, equity in educational opportunities and continuing education. Virtual classroom and online education constitute the fourth stage in distance education, the first three being postal system, use of radio and TV and tele-conferencing. In the knowledge society distance education offers immense possibilities and opportunities that must be maximally utilized. E-Commerce

Best opportunities for Asian entrepreneurs lie in mobile commerce, ebusiness architecture, ASP enablers and language portals. Entrepreneurs should be more focused (than they are currently), develop a single business plan and mileposts for IPO’s mergers or other forms of growth. They should use independent means of assessing the value of any specific VC to their particular goals. VCs have a better chance of realizing their objectives through as much diverse supports (HR, Marketing, strategy) they can provide to entrepreneurs besides finance.
